Carpool will leave DUMC at 9:00 am
Lunch at 12:30 at the Mountain Gate Restaurant in Thurmont
Built in 1875, the National Shrine is one of the oldest replicas of the Lourdes shrine in France. Be blessed as you enjoy the leisurely paved walk through the Stations of the Cross, the 15 Mysteries of the Rosary, the statues and sculptures of holy men and women, the Corpus Christi Chapel and the beautiful gardens and fountains. Bring your own container to collect the fresh filtered Grotto spring water, which is considered to be “holy water.” You will discover first-hand why this peaceful location is visited by so many and is used as a place of prayer and devotion. You will leave feeling refreshed. There will also be time to visit the gift shop afterward.
