Sudbury, Ontario is home to the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes originally built in 1907 by Frédéric Romanet du Caillaud. Recently restored and expanded, the hilltop site in downtown Sudbury is a wonderful experience in tranquility, contemplation and reflection. The views over Sudbury's magnificent Lake Ramsey are unparalled.
The Grotto contains about twenty monuments.
The exhibits add a broader philosophical approach and a greater ecumenical dimension to the site so those of various faiths or no faith may find both meaning and solitude on its grounds. The exhibits create a feeling of looking through a kind of window on God’s plan for humanity, enabling the Grotto to be an oasis of peace with inspiring and rallying monuments conducive to pray and reflection.
Give yourself at least an hour to walk this wondrous site, especially the fourteen Stations of the Cross and the Labyrinth.
