On 11th February 1858, Virgin Mary appeared to 14-year-old Bernadette at the cave of Massabielle, Lourdes, France. Subsequently, she appeared to Bernadette on 18 more occasions. To commemorate this, every year we celebrate the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes on 11th February.
On Saturday, 11th February 2023 at 6.15 pm, parishioners gathered in front of the grotto of the church to recite the rosary. The members of Lourdes Ward I and II led the prayer service.
