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.

2023 Season

From May 27 to October 1

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.
