Lourdes online broadcast a success

Thousands of viewers tune in for procession

TV Lourdes, the online streaming service for the French sanctuary has reported that its nightly broadcast of the torchlight procession has become a resounding success, with thousands tuning in on the internet each evening since the launch of the initiative on the feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary at the end of June.

Thanks to a new camera permanently fixed on the Rosary Esplanade, the sanctuary is able to capture the procession each night between 9pm and 10pm, and, following the positive feedback will continue the nightly coverage to November 2.
