Whilst in Lourdes there will be many other people from all over the world. Millions of people visit the shrine each year. There is a chance to gather and celebrate as a world Church at the International Mass which takes place on the Wednesday or Sunday each week – we will attend one of these.
Pilgrims normally attend Mass every day – which take place in a variety of locations.
A Eucharistic procession takes place every afternoon and there will be one day when our pilgrims will participate in the processions and perhaps take on special roles in it.
A Marian torchlight procession also takes place every night and there will be one night when pilgrims will participate in the processions and perhaps take on special roles in it.
In addition to Masses and Processions there may also be other services that Pilgrims attend
