Services

The Hospitaliers who make up the association are men and women, from all over the world, aged between 18 and 75.

On completion of their first four years of service and formation (training) they can either apply for full membership of the Hospitalité Notre Dame de Lourdes by making their engagement (commitment) or they can continue coming in service as “auxiliary hospitaliers”.

Three years after engagement Hospitaliers may, if they wish, apply to make their "CONSECRATION TO JESUS THROUGH MARY", following guidance from the Chaplain General.

Hospitaliers serve in one of six "Services":
