Opening of the Holy Door

Sunday, April 3rd - 10:00am - Opening of the Holy Doors

The Ceremony begins under the pavilion and continues with a procession to the front Doors of the Chapel, followed by Mass, celebrated by Bishop Richard Lennon.

Attendance is by ticket only, unfortunately all tickets have been distributed.  If you were unable to get a ticket, please visit the Shrine in the afternoon!

Receive an indulgence by making a Pilgrimage to Our Lady of Lourdes Shrine:

  • Walk through the Holy Door
  • Say an Our Father and Hail Mary for the intention of the Holy Father
  • Go to Mass and Communion
  • Go to Confession (a week before or a week after making the Pilgrimage)
Fulfill all of these holy practices and receive the Mercy of God: an indulgence for yourself, someone deceased, someone you are praying for, or those Holy Souls in Purgatory.

A plenary indulgence is the remission before God of the temporal punishment due to be suffered for sins that have already been forgiven.
