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

Please note the opening date is yet to be determined.

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.

Those little things

A holy Christian life is made up of a number of small things: Little words, not eloquent sermons; Little deeds, not miracles of battle or one great, heroic deed of martyrdom; The little constant sunbeam, not the lightning. (Andrew Bonard)

Lord’s Prayer

You can not pray the Lord’s Prayer, and even once say “I.” You can not pray the Lord’s Prayer and even once say “My.” Nor can you pray the Lord’s Prayer, and not pray for another. (Charles Thompson)

My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.
