Day 4 of the study tour to France - 1Day 4 of the study tour to France - 2

Today was our pilgrimage to Lourdes to where St. Bernadette experienced apparitions of Mary in a grotto on the side of a mountain.   It was a very special, spiritual and meaningful experience for all girls and staff on this tour, and particularly so because one of our College Houses, Lourdes, is named after this event.   


It is a stunningly beautiful village at the foot of the snow capped Pyrenees mountains. We took time to pray in the church, at the grotto and to experience the atmosphere of this faith filled place.  Many students and staff filled bottles of the water that flows from the spring to bring back to loved ones.  We all felt something very special about spending the day in Lourdes.
