Become Part of the Shrine to Our Lady of Lourdes

Our Lady of Lourdes Gaffey Plaza Video Intro from Vallombrosa Center on Vimeo.

History of the Project:

In 2018,  a benefactor was attending one of the sponsored retreats and came forth to offer to reconstruct the rather humble Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes originally built in the early 50’s.  The Vision grew and now we hope to add an associated project of gardens and a plaza – named for the beloved, late Fr. Kevin Gaffey – a priest in residence at Vallombrosa who had a great devotion to Our Lady. There will be a Fountain of St. Bernadette and the “Path of Spiritual Works” with two Formal gates and numerous benches. All these parts surround the Shrine and create a quiet and sacred space for prayer, reflection and devotion.  There will be an outdoor alter for mass at the Shrine in Gaffey Plaza…

A donation of any size will help this project come to life.
