Pilgrimage to Lourdes with the ICRSP

Any reason to go to France is a good reason, but this one seems exceptionally good.  From the website of the Institute of Christ the King, Sovereign Priest:


March 29 - 30, 2008

This year, Holy Mother Church commemorates the 150th anniversary

of the apparitions of Our Lady in Lourdes in 1858,

when she identified herself to St. Bernadette Soubirous

as the "Immaculate Conception,"

thus confirming the dogma proclaimed four years before.

Join Msgr. Gilles Wach, Prior General of the Institute of Christ the King, and other members of the Institute on a two-day pilgrimage to Lourdes.
