Warriors to Lourdes

U.S. Military personnel — including the wounded, ill, and injured — are invited to apply for an all-expenses-paid, round-trip journey to the Marian grotto and spring baths at Lourdes, France, during the 62nd annual Pèlerinage Militaire International (PMI)—or “International Military Pilgrimage.”

The PMI will be held next year from May 12 to 19, 2020, drawing thousands of troops, veterans, and others from around the world to the famous Marian shrine where the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to Saint Bernadette Soubirous in 1858.  Applications are being accepted from Sept. 13, 2019, through January 15, 2020.
