Our Lady of Lourdes Sanctuary of Rigaud

Except during the winter (when the road is not plowed), the Sanctuary grounds are always open. However, all activities at the Sanctuary (Eucharistic celebrations, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, praying the Rosary, access to the gift shop, etc.) are offered only during the Sanctuary’s season, which is from the end of May to the end of September.

2021 Season

From July 3 to September 26

In 1874 ...

... situated at the foot of the Rigaud mountain, amidst the beauty of nature, Our Lady of Lourdes Sanctuary became a place of pilgrimage under the ministry of the Clerics of St-Viateur.

 

Supported by a team of staff and volunteers, the priests and brothers assist the faithful through individual spiritual direction, faith education and proclamation of the Gospel message through dynamic liturgical celebrations.

Make me preach you without preaching …

Stay with me, and then I shall begin to shine as you shine, so to shine as to be a light to others. The light, O Jesus, will be all from you. It will be you who shines through me upon others. (Cardinal Newman)

God Never Abandons Us

21 May 2021

As an act of love, let us bring into prayer our families, our friends, our neighbors. Let us pray for those who are sick and suffering. Let us pray for the Clerics of St. Viateur. Let us pray for all the pilgrims who come to Our Lady’s Sanctuary. Let us pray for all those with whom over the years we have shared the celebration of Mass at our parishes and especially at Our Lady’s beautiful Sanctuary. Let us pray for one another!
