Archdiocesan Pilgrimage in Girouxville

August 13 @ 6:00 pm - August 15 @ 4:00 pm

We are pleased to announce the return of our Archdiocesan Pilgrimage in Girouxville this summer, held from August 13-15. With the lifting of restrictions, we are encouraging all who would like to attend the pilgrimage in person to come out!

Paroisse Notre Dame De Lourdes
4904 50 Ave, Girouxville, AB
The official schedule for our pilgrimage can be viewed here: https://archgm.ca/archdiocesan-pilgrimage/.
Campgrounds will be available all weekend on site near the Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Girouxville, wihout electrical outlets or water/sewage facilities. There will be portable washrooms on site. Camping will also be available on local recreation grounds, and in vacant areas near mobile subdivisions (weather permitting). The Girouxville Municipal campground will also be available for $20 per night; includes firewood and treated water.
We are encouraging all to join us in person, but if many are not comfortable or able to join us in Girouxville due to restrictions or concerns around the pandemic, we are also encouraging parishes to mirror some of the events of the pilgrimage in their own church this same weekend. Our schedule includes Adoration and Benediction Friday evening, a Vigil Mass and Candlelight Procession on Saturday evening, a healing service on Sunday, and many, many other events.
Whether united with us in Girouxville or in your own local parish, we as an archdiocese will all come together – especially to celebrate the Assumption of our Blessed Mother on Sunday, August 15.
We hope to see you all there!
