Pilgrimage to Lourdes

October 18-30, 2017

Lourdes France
Lourdes, France

Our Pilgrimage to Lourdes began in Paris and traveled northwest through Giverny (Monet's home and water lily gardens) to the Normandy beaches and American Cemeteries and beyond to the famed Abbey at Mont St. Michel. From there, we traveled down through the French countryside to the wine region of Bordeaux. Enjoy a 3-hour lunch cruise on the Garonne River on our way to Toulouse and the medieval walled-in city of Carcassonne. The climax of the journey was the Shrine at Lourdes and the seaside village of Biarritz on the Atlantic coast.

As a new priest, it was awe-inspiring to celebrate the Eucharist in some truly beautiful and historic churches. Our journey through France led us in the footsteps of St. Joan of Arc, St. Thomas Aquinas and St. Bernadette. Together, we grew in our devotion to Our Lord at Sacré Coeur, to Our Lady at Lourdes and to St. Michael at Mont-Saint-Michel. Oh yeah, and the wine wasn’t bad either.
