Travel with Cardinal Justin Rigali and Father Michael Hendershott on a pilgrimage to Fatima and Lourdes. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the appearance of our Blessed Mother to three young children in central Portugal. From March 1917 to October 1917 the Virgin Mary appeared 6 times and told the children she had been sent by God with a message for a world living in chaos.
Highlights of this September pilgrimage include visiting St. Stephen’s Church in Santarem, site of the miracle of the Bleeding Host, celebrating Mass at the Capelinha, where Our Lady appeared to the three shepherd children, and enjoying the coastal town of Nazare and the medieval town of Batalha.
We will pass through Burgos and Loyola while on the way to Lourdes. In Lourdes, we take part in candlelight rosary processions, have an opportunity to bathe in the healing waters, and enjoy a guided tour of St. Bernadette’s home and the Basilica.
Mass will be available each day of this pilgrimage.
Cardinal Justin Rigali and Father Michael Hendershott will be your spiritual guides on this extraordinary pilgrimage of devotion to our Blessed Mother.
