Warriors to Lourdes 2019

Warriors to Lourdes 2019

 Since 2013, the Knights of Columbus has worked with the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA, (AMS) to sponsor the annual Warriors to Lourdes Pilgrimage. The event allows non-wounded, wounded, ill or injured military personnel, together with their designated caregivers and volunteers, to travel to the Marian shrine during the PMI for a time of rest, prayer and healing.

 It costs $2600 to send 1 US Wounded Veteran to Lourdes. By financially supporting the 2019 Warriors to Lourdes Pilgrimage, which takes place in May of 2019, you can make this pilgrimage possible for our military personnel in need. The pilgrimage consists of a number of spiritual events, including an international opening ceremony, special Masses, a visit to the baths at the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes and a candlelight vigil that draws tens of thousands of troops to the sacred shrine every year.

 Local and state Knights of Columbus councils, assemblies, individuals and other groups can support the Warriors to Lourdes Pilgrimage with financial contributions.

 Each $2,600 donated will send a warrior pilgrim to Lourdes. All funds donated will be used to defray costs for military personnel and for their designated care givers. Help send U.S. service members on a pilgrimage like no other.
