Candlelight Procession at Lourdes - 10/21/17
Nearly five thousand faithful traveled to Lourdes in the south of France on October 21-22-23, 2017 for the Society of St. Pius X’s annual pilgrimage in honor of Christ the King.
On Saturday October 21, the clergy and faithful gathered once again after sunset for a candlelight Rosary Procession. Thousands of candles formed an interminable chain of light that snaked around the prairie and past the grotto as the Aves and Glorias rang out under the clear night sky. Then a Prayer Vigil took place all night long at the grotto.
