"Overcome your fears, cross boundaries" 3,500 primary, college and secondary school children in Lourdes

From 15 to 18 October, the gathering "Loyola XXI" will bring together, in the Sanctuary of Lourdes, students from fourteen French Jesuits schools. 3,500 young people will experience an invigorating spiritual re-treat, as the hymn of their pilgrimage tells us: "... Holy Spirit, I need you. By your gifts, revive my faith. In you, I can overcome my fears". So, replenished with the benefits of the grace of Lourdes, they will leave like the apostles, and in the footsteps of their founder Saint Ignatius of Loyola, to "overcome their fears and cross boundaries".
