Mission grotto pilgrimage set for Aug. 21

There’s a new pastor at the helm of the largest annual event in the Archdiocese of Vancouver this year. Father Alessandro Lovato has barely moved into the parish, and he’s now the man in charge of the Pilgrimage to Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto in Mission. The event takes place Saturday, Aug. 21. The annual event at Fraser River Heritage Park will draw thousands of Catholics from parishes around the Archdiocese of Vancouver for the event in honour of the Our Lady of Lourdes in France, which two years ago celebrated the 100th anniversary of Mary’s appearances at Lourdes. See The B.C. Catholic for the full story.
