Lourdes Day 1

Greetings from Lourdes We arrived today safely at 11 o clock. We dropped our bags off at the hotel and had a lovely lunch there. We then went to the wards to prepare for the pilgrims arrival. We received training on voiture and chaise usage, which is the mode of transport for sick pilgrims. We helped the pilgrims unpack and settle in as we have been given the duty of ward support. We had a tour of the Domain and saw the beautiful grotto 🙂 after our duties we watched a candle lit procession. At 9:30 we went to prairie with all the school volunteers. We reflected on our hopes and expectations for the week. Tomorrow is a much busier day but we are very excited.
