Our first evening in Lourdes led us to the rosary candlelight processions with an international flavor. Our students participated from the top of the Basilica the first night in Lourdes.
At the conclusion of the evening we stayed for a magnificent firework show set off from the Lourdes Fort. While Macy's does a great job back in New York, the French version on Bastille Day gave some serious competition.
Sunday, July 15th we participated in English Mass in the St. John Paul II Center and acquired our service papers in the Hospitalite - Notre Dame de Lourdes. WE shall start our service tomorrow in various sites.
