"build a chapel here"

On 2nd March 1858, 1,650 people were gathered at the Grotto.  Bernadette knelt down, made the sign of the Cross, and recited her rosary. Her face lit up - the Lady was there.  She went to the spring to drink and wash.  The lady then said:  “Go and tell the priests to build a chapel here and that people should come in procession.” 

In 2023 the Lourdes Authorities ask us to reflect on the request that our Lady gave for a chapel to be built. Our Archdiocesan Pilgrimage is planned from Friday 7 July to Friday 14 July 2023.  We will update this page as we progress towards Lourdes 2023.
