Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto

Originally uploaded by ConnieC.

Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto. In 1958 a bishop travelled to Lourdes, France, site of various Mary sightings (I think). He was impressed with how the rock formations were similar to here near St. John's, so he created the Stations of the Cross in the rock. It appears they have everything to conduct a service outdoors as well. Marty and I walked around and up top, as there are stairs carved into the rock. It is difficult to see against the bright sky, but their is a crucifix on top of the rock on the left side.
