"Welcome to our shrine website. This is the first shrine in India dedicated to Our Lady of Lourdes in the year 1897, in remembrance of Her apparition in Lourdes, France in the year 1858. This shrine is located in Perambur, Chennai, South India. As Our Lady always tells us “Open your Hearts, I will lead you to Jesus”., let us open our hearts to prayer and do penance and let Our Lady come along with us to lead us closer to Jesus our Lord!. May God bless you. You are most welcome to be part of our parish in all its spiritual and social activites."
