Our Lady of Lourdes holds a special place in our hearts as a manifestation of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

In 1858, in the small town of Lourdes, France, the Virgin Mary appeared to a young girl named Bernadette Soubirous. The messages conveyed during these apparitions centred on repentance, prayer and the sanctity of the Immaculate Conception.

The Blessed Mother also revealed a spring with healing properties. Lourdes has since become a significant pilgrimage site, drawing millions seeking physical and spiritual healing.

We honour Our lady of Lourdes as a symbol of grace, intercession and maternal love. The feast day of Our Lady of Lourdes serves as a poignant reminder of the power of faith and the compassionate presence of the Virgin Mary in our lives.

Rejoice with Jerusalem and be glad for her, all you who love her; rejoice greatly with her, all you who mourn over her. – Isaiah 66:10
