Order of Malta Australia


2021 Order of Malta Lourdes Virtual Pilgrimage


The Order’s annual pilgrimage to Lourdes was due to start this Thursday 29 April and continue until Monday 3 May. It is usually an inspirational 5 days of prayer, service, fraternity and fun.

Due to the pandemic, there will be very few pilgrims in Lourdes again this year and the Australian Association will not be participating. However, we all have the opportunity to participate virtually.

The celebrations will be broadcast on the Sanctuary’s YouTube channel, to which you can connect from any PC device, tablet or mobile phone through the following link:
