The Museu Diocesà de Barcelona is hosting an exhibition that commemorates the work of the Hospitalidad de la Virgen de Lourdes. The exposition includes memorabilia and photographs from the hospital throughout the century. Of particular interest, this hospital has made great efforts to bring the ill on pilgrimages to Lourdes, a small town in the foothills of the Pyrenees in France famed for the Marian apparitions of Our Lady of Lourdes that are reported to have occurred in 1858 to Bernadette Soubirous.
This event will be inaugurated by a Catholic Eucharist at 7pm and an inauguration at 8pm on Wednesday, April 7th.
