Lamont Things to Do
~ Skaro Shrine ~
The Skaro Shrine was a beautiful find. We almost missed it as the sign indicating where it was just happened to be very close to the point where you turn off. A quick turn around and we parked in the church parking.
Skaro is the site of an annual pilgrimage to the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes. The annual pilgrimage is August 14th and 15th.
August 14th - Confessions before Mass
7:00pm - Rosary followed by Vespers
8:00pm - Mass with Archbishop presiding
Candlelight procession with Blessed Sacrament
9:30 am Mass with Blessing of the Sick
11:00am Polish Mass with procession followed by Blessed Sacrament
The grounds are immaculate and there is lots of space on the greenery for those who wish to attend the Pilgrimage. The Shrine is beautiful. There is a small altar for 'prayers answered' at the front on the altar. There are stone steps that loop up and around the main area. There are smaller steps the loop behind the crucifix
There are angelic monuments on either side of the altar area. Also a Jubilee monument, and a few more angelic statues around the grounds.Related to:
