Day 1: 61st International Lourdes Pilgrimage of the Order of Malta
Each year, Lourdes dedicates the first weekend in May for the Annual Pilgrimage of the International Order of Malta. Over 7,000 members and volunteers from all over the world take part, including 1,600 sick and disabled pilgrims.
In 2019, the Australian Association will again be joining with the Irish Association.
