Attention all those devoted to the Blessed Mother, Vincentian Institute alumni, and anyone who desires to support the Lourdes Grotto Restoration.

Please join Bishop Edward Scharfenberger for Holy Mass on Sunday, February 11th at 1pm, at Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto to celebrate the 160th Anniversary of the apparitions at Lourdes.  A reception with refreshments from 2pm-4pm will take place at the Police Athletic League auditorium through the 844 Madison Ave entrance.

Let’s show the Bishop how special this Grotto is, and how much restoring it would mean to the community.   

The Lourdes Grotto is located on the corner of Ontario St and Yates St, with parking available at St Vincent’s Church parking lot on 900 Madison Ave as well as on-street.  For more information feel free to email at
