It is the most visited pilgrimage site in the Christian world. Lourdes welcomes more than 6,000,000 pilgrims annually to venerate the site of the Marian Apparitions in 1858.

Each year that site welcomes military members from more than 40 countries for the international military pilgrimage.

U.S. service members that are active, retired, or honorably discharged can apply for an all-expenses paid trip through the Knights of Columbus Charities.
