International Military Pilgrimage

2018 marked the 60th International Military Pilgrimage to Lourdes. It was established to promote reconciliation and peace after World War II. Every year since, for one weekend in May, Lourdes has become a place of prayer and healing for active-duty members and veterans representing more than 40 nations. Here we record some of the sights and sounds of this extraordinary event and hear some of our Military Chaplains reflect on the experience, as well as some personal stories from Military personnel.
