Bereavement and Compassion

Our Lady on her mission of healing is extending her arms to us to carry us to her son Jesus and accompany us through this journey of grief.

The members of Our Lady of Lourdes Bereavement and Compassion ministry are ready to continue Our Lady’s mission by accompanying the mourning families through the grieving process, offering support, prayers, and guidance as families plan the funeral liturgy and other funeral arrangements; offering after the funeral, support, and prayers through their healing process, to the family and friends of the deceased, and attending ongoing formation to support this ministry.

If you are called to say “YES” like Our Lady, professional training is available for all those who are willing to accompany those families who have lost their loved ones, for we are never alone.

Famille Notre Dame de Lourdes


Robert Villasmil

(305) 219-1363

Our goal is to honor the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary, by renewing faith in the forgiveness of sins. We recognize that grace precedes and is waiting for us. It is always available in the heart of Mary, “younger” than sin.

We pray and do penance for sinners, we encourage the birth of small churches or chapels, that manifest the joy of living together as brothers and sisters, and to collaborate on the journey of the people of God to the Holy City where God will be all in all.

The Hospitalité Notre Dame de Lourdes is the confraternity that organizes and assists pilgrim groups from around the world, especially those who seek to make it possible for the sick and suffering to come to Lourdes for healing.

The members of the Hospitalité Notre Dame de Lourdes are the ones who welcome special needs pilgrims at the airport and train station and bring them to the Sanctuary, they serve at the Piscines where pilgrims go into the water, and they serve at the Grotto and during the Masses and processions of the Sanctuary. It is also in charge of the four-year training that we go through at the Sanctuary and when we make our lifelong commitment to serve at Lourdes we each become active members of the Hospitalité Notre Dame de Lourdes.
