A visit to Lourdes is something of which many dream, but is not always possible. Run by the Montfort Missionaries, here in Litchfield you will find a replica of the Lourdes Grotto, in Lourdes, France. The Grotto was begun in 1956 and completed two years later. It was built from local field stone and closely resembles the one in Lourdes, France.

In addition to the Grotto, there are Stations of the Cross set in a winding trail that leads its way up a wooded hill to the final station, the Crucifixion. Each station includes life-size bronze figures.

The Montfort House, in addition to being the home of the Montfort Missionaries, offers facilities for days of recollection, organized retreats and opportunities for prayer and reflection.

Daily Mass will is celebrated at Montfort House from Tuesday through Saturday. On Sunday, Mass is be celebrated in the Grotto Chapel, across from Pilgrim Hall.

There is Mass every day except Monday.Confessions can usually be heard in English, Spanish, French and Italian. Since Mass times change with the season, check their website below.

The shrine has a gift shop and also a cafe, open during the pilgrimage season (May 1 through mid-October). It is staffed by volunteers.

  1. Hello
    We hope this message finds you well.
    My wife and I are reaching out to you through the church website to express our interest in exploring adoption. We believe that every child deserves a loving, nurturing home, and we are eager to provide such an environment. We are specifically looking to welcome a child aged newborn to 4 years into our family but open to other options.
    We have been considering adoption for a while now and feel that this is the right time for us to begin this journey. We understand that the church may have resources or programs related to adoption, and we would greatly appreciate any guidance or assistance that you can provide. While we may not be active in the congregation, we hold a deep respect and appreciation for the values of love, kindness, and community that the church upholds.
    We would be grateful if you could provide us with any information about available resources, local programs, or contacts that could assist us in our adoption journey. We’re particularly interested in any resources that focus on the adoption of younger children. We’re open to any advice or guidance that can help us navigate this process.
    Thank you in advance for your time and assistance. Please email us at izzomichael7@gmail.com or please call or txt 321-288-6977

    We look forward to hearing from you soon.
    Best regards,
    Mike & Katy
