We no longer live in CT and therefore miss those opportunities to escape to the Shrine grounds. We always experienced a sense of peace, tranquilty and beauty there. It's calming influence can't help but nurture the soul.
Lourdes in Litchfield Shrine of Our Lady of Lourde, is a very humble place where one can feel the presence of God. With my wife being deceased and my moving to Florida(a stopping place before the cemetery) I truly miss not driving from West Haven to the Shrine mostly every Sunday during the summer months. I believe that anyone who wants to get closer to Our Father, this is the Place to visit.
I think this is the most peaceful place in the Connecticut Hills. You do not have to be Catholic to appreciate the serenity. The grounds are lovely and there is a place to have a picnic lunch in addition to the trail of the Stations of the Cross. You will enjoy this as a place of tranquility in the hills.
I HAVE NEVER FELT SO GOOD AS I DO, WHEN I VISIT THE LOURDES. BEAUTY, AND PEACE ARE ALL AROUND YOU, IT'S A LITTLE BIT OF HEAVEN HERE ON EARTH,I WILL BE GOING THIS PALM SUNDAY 07, AND I CAN'T WAIT. SO IF YOUR THINKING OF GOING GO... YOU WON'T REGRET IT.
I would recommend this beautiful place to anyone of any age or any religion.
You can feel Peace here no matter how many other visitors there are.
You can spend a few minutes or spend a day.
There are places to picnic or just spend some time alone in prayer. Or just enjoy the quiet.
Masses are great and the music and singing are awesome!
The food in Pilgrim Hall is all freshly made, by the many volunteers that run the Shrine.
The gift shop is open all year and has many beautiful and religious gifts.
Incredible wonderful energy upon driving in to the shrine. What a beautiful piece of property and well cared for. Warm and friendly greeting by the volunteers and the priests. We have decided to make the trip every Sunday 45 minutes to 10:30am mass. In late May to October they have mass outside at the grotto. We have heard many stories of miracles happening within this shrine and I believe this possible after visiting this very heavenly place.
Our Lady of Lourdes is a blessing from God-
a gift to His children. Experiencing the heavenly-like spiritual atmostphere at Lourdes brings people in closer communion with God. This is where we need to be, where
God wants us to be.
Lourdes brings people to God and there is no
better place to be. We wish with our whole
beings to be with God while on earth and and
in heaven, our final and true home. Thanks be to God.
