The weather cooperated nicely with us today as we went to the early morning English Mass at the Grotto at Lourdes.

We had our group picture taken in front of the huge basilica before walking through the small town of Lourdes following the life of Saint Bernadette and her apparitions.

Everybody had the afternoon free again to enjoy all there is to do at Lourdes. Lots of shops, all day confessions, revisiting the shrine, collecting water to take home and all the chapels again for prayer, Rosary and much more. We gathered together again at 6:30 PM for blessing of religious items purchased and at 7 PM for our Farewell Dinner and everyone prepares to leave early in the morning.
