A “Chaplain” is the name given to the priests who carry out their ministry at the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes; they are the “guardians of the Chapel”. They come from different countries to minister to pilgrims in the official languages used at the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes. During the season, from Easter to the end of October, auxiliary priests come to help them in their work, especially in the ministry of confession. Below, you can find details of some of the Sanctuary Chaplains currently in post.
