Giving Tuesday - November 28, 2017





Our Lady of Lourdes Shrine is an oasis in the middle of the city.



The Shrine is a replica of the Grotto in Lourdes, France.  Incorporated into the Grotto are two stones taken from the stone upon which Our Lady appeared in Lourdes.  The water from the Grotto flows freely over one of these holy relics.

Since its opening (May 30, 1926) thousands of pilgrims from across the country and from Canada have come to honor Our Lady and place their petitions before her.  Hundreds of favors, both spiritual and temporal, have been reported as granted.

Today, the Shrine, staffed by the Sisters of the Most Holy Trinity, is available for pilgrims and parish groups to come for prayer and reflections.  The Sisters host and conduct retreats and days of recollection as requested.

For a prayerful and safe environment for all pilgrims who come to the Shrine.  It is necessary to lay underground piping in the Stations to help with the natural water flow and remove some dying trees.
