St. Bernadette’s Relics to Visit NYC on May 23rd

05/06/2022 

Although nothing can replace our annual pilgrimage to Lourdes, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to bring a piece of Lourdes to New York City.
We encourage you to invite individuals who are in need of healing that you would have liked to bring on the pilgrimage these past few years, but were unable to do so, as well as those who may never have a chance to visit Lourdes. We also would like you to invite former malades and caregivers, as well as your family and friends.

If you are unable to join in person, the event will be livestreamed from St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Information on how to join virtually will be forthcoming.

Prayer Intentions

Please click here if you would like to submit prayer intentions that will be placed at the altar during the Offertory of the Mass.

Registration

Please click here to log into the Members Only section of our website and register. ArchCare is looking for volunteers to assist Malades during their visit at the Cathedral. If you are willing to help as a volunteer, please let us know when you register. Volunteering will entail welcoming Malades upon their arrival at the Cathedral, as well as assisting with their care during the event. This will include pushing wheelchair-bound patients around the Cathedral. All Members and Affiliates who volunteer are asked to wear their Lourdes or Wisconsin Pilgrimage work uniform.
