JFK Lourdes Hospitality

Throughout Europe annual Hospitality pilgrimages bring terminally ill, elderly, and handicap special needs individuals to Lourdes. Each year over 50,000 seriously ill pilgrims make the spiritual journey to the Grotto. The joy of special needs pilgrims is evident in their faces and tearful farewells. Nobody goes home empty-handed! This unique experience is made possible by the volunteer services of over 100,000 Hospitality lay helpers and medical professionals from all over the world. North American Lourdes Volunteers is the first Hospitality of the Americas now accompanying special needs pilgrims to Lourdes each year.
