Assisted Pilgrim Packages 2019:

 
 

The Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate have been organising Pilgrimages to Lourdes since 1883. 

Every year pilgrims join us from Ireland, Britain and the Channel Islands. Some 100 Assisted Pilgrims, who require a special level of care and comfort, accompany the other pilgrims and stay in the Accueil Notre Dame. 

Designed in the form of open arms like the Rosary Basilica the Accueil Notre-Dame reminds us that, in Lourdes, everyone is made welcome and cared for. The Accueil Notre-Dame is neither a hotel nor a hospital. It is exclusively reserved for the sick and disabled pilgrims as well as those who accompany them. 

Situated on the banks of the River Gave and within the Sanctuary, the Accueil Notre-Dame has an atmosphere of peace and calm surrounded by gardens, fountains and flowerbeds.

Rooms are shared, spacious and furnished hospital style with specially adapted toilets and showers, offering every possible comfort for all pilgrims especially those who are sick or have a disability. Each room has an oxygen supply and each bed is fitted with an alarm bell. Meals are varied and can be adapted to special diets. They are served in the dining rooms of the Accueil or in the bedrooms for those who are unable to move.
