Who We Are

A happy ACROSS group make friends
with a pilgrim from Brazil in a Lourdes cafe!
What We Do
ACROSS organizes pilgrimages of a lifetime to the Christian Marian Shrine of Lourdes in South West France for those needing special care.
People whom are sick and disabled (whom we call VIPs) are taken to Lourdes, accompanied by a doctor, nurses, a priest and helpers by Jumbulance: a unique vehicle with ambulance status, specially constructed to carry our VIPs.
Priority is given to those in terminal illness, those with progressive diseases and those whose medical conditions make it impossible or impractical to use conventional means of transport.
ACROSS aims to enable the pilgrims to participate in a spiritual experience, while also enjoying holiday activities and the company of others in changed surroundings.
