Youth group members at St. Anthony’s parish in Nanuet hosted and joined in a March 9 Lourdes Virtual Pilgrimage, a guided spiritual journey that brings the Lourdes experience to participants. The evening program included a virtual tour slide presentation, “Encountering Bernadette Soubirous,” followed by two processions. In the first procession, all present were able to touch four grotto rocks that are relics from where Our Lady appeared in 1858. In the second procession, the youths presented Lourdes water from the grotto in Lourdes, France, for all to touch. The gathering concluded with Exposition and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, and praying the Rosary by candlelight.
