8th December: come and celebrate the feast of the Immaculate Conception in Lourdes.

You will recall that the Lady who appeared in Lourdes for the 16th time to Bernadette Soubirous at the Grotto of Massabielle, introduced herself by saying, “I am the Immaculate Conception”. And ever since 25th March 1858, the crowds have been touched by it; those who had already come to the Grotto, and the others since. Because this Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary is also for us. Come and celebrate the Immaculate Conception in Lourdes.

The programme for the day is available on the Sanctuary's portal.
