The International Military Pilgrimage to Lourdes is back after years of postponements due to the world pandemic.

The annual Warriors to Lourdes Pilgrimage is back in 2022, after postponements in recent years due to the world pandemic. This year’s event brought some 175 veterans and active-duty U.S. personnel to the Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes, in Western France. The event was co-sponsored by the Knights of Columbus and the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA.
