P { margin-bottom: 0.21cm; }

In line with the pastoral theme of the Sanctuary, "Lourdes, the joy of conversion" from September 16 to 20, 5,000 pilgrims will participate in the LCE pilgrimage (Lourdes Cancer Espérance) whose slogan this year is: "Choose life!" They are affected by the disease, either personally or through a relative.

The pilgrimage is chaired by the Archbishop of Chambéry (France), Bishop Philippe Ballot, and led by Laurent Grzybowski. Dr. Loïc Chaigneau, oncologist, presents the great conference on Wednesday 17 September at 10:30 am at the Church of St. Bernadette. The celebrations are prepared by the LCE delegations. The Sacrament of the Anointing of the sick is always a very emotional time (Friday 19 September at 2.00 pm). The pilgrimage ends on Saturday by the release of balloons at 10.45 am on the Sanctuary Esplanade.
