New live broadcast on TV Lourdes from 9pm till 10 pm in the evening
Now, early this summer, TV Lourdes, the web TV of the Sanctuary, has a brand new quality programme: the Torchlight Procession live from Lourdes every evening on the internet, from 9pm till 10 pm (until the 2nd of November).
Launched on the 28th of June 2014, the feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, this new hour of live broadcast from Lourdes is already delighting thousands of internet surfers who connect with Lourdes TV every day.
We have received positive feedback, like this message from Bernard Grollier: “A big thank you to Lourdes TV which I am watching more and more. Thanks to you, I feel closer to Lourdes, closer to Mary. That helps me to be patient between trips to Lourdes. A special thank you for the new broadcast: the Marian Procession at 9pm. Well done!”
A new camera has been installed on the perimeter of the Rosary Esplanade to allow transmission of the procession.
