Eucharistic Adoration with St Mary Magdalene

6-Day Mary Magdalene Pilgrimage in Provence includes the PARDON of TOURVES

Basilica of Saint Mary Magdalene Provence

This special Mary Magdalene Pilgrimage will have an emphasis on Eucharistic Adoration. Fr Florian Racine, MSE, rector of the Basilica of Saint Mary Magdalene in St Maximin-la-Sainte-Baume and moderator of the Missionaries of the Most Holy Eucharist will discuss the benefits of Eucharistic Adoration with Saint Mary Magdalene, and what we can learn by her example, as she was the first Adorer. All services in English. This pilgrimage is open for 25 to 35 pilgrims.

Also included is the PARDON of TOURVES on May 3, 2020, a plenary indulgence and remission of all sins granted by Pope Pius VII to the village and the parish of Tourves on February 28, 1805. And you will be blessed by an actual THORN from the Holy Crown of Thorns which resides in the parish church in Tourves, Church of the Annonciade. See itinerary below.
