Seminarians are welcome in Lourdes. During their stay in the Sanctuary, they're under the responsibility of the rector.
Seminarians can spend 2 or 3 weeks in Lourdes through a common life of prayer and meals together. They also have a time of sharing experiences that help to establish links with various countries. This is a rich experience for these young men, allowing them to approach the message of Lourdes and to meet pilgrims from all around the world. Seminarians must have the approval of their seminar.
