Lourdes in Tamil colours

Actualité

tamil family in lourdesEvery summer, Lourdes wel­comes thousands of Tamil families, often wearing their traditional costumes.

Most of these pilgrims, very at­tached to Sri Lankan and In­dian cultures, come from the Paris region and are Catholic. They like Lourdes, which resembles a very popular Marian shrine in India, that of Our Lady of Good Health, at Vailankanni.
