The Grotto Committee’s mission is to make known and spread devotion to Our Lady of Lourdes, as well as other devotions, and to maintain and use the Grotto Grounds and Gift Shop. Our main goal is spreading devotion to the parish’s namesake Our Lady of Lourdes, focusing on the main themes of Lourdes: the Immaculate Conception, the Rosary, and the miraculous Lourdes water. Among other devotions planned are outdoor services including the Divine Mercy Chaplet, Stations of the Cross, Masses, Benedictions, and Rosary processions. All parishioners are welcome to join, and we have the 33 Club if you care to financially support Our Lady’s Grotto.
