Welcome to our faith page, brought to you by Our Lady of Lourdes Shire.
Short Shrine history: Our Lady of Lourdes Shrine in Euclid, Ohio was dedicated in 1926. It is a replica of the Lourdes Shrine in Lourdes France. In 1858, Mary the Mother of Jesus appeared to the young peasant girl Bernadette at Lourdes. Mary left behind a spring of water. Pilgrims, in France, claim cures by drinking and bathing in the water. The Shrine in Euclid is considered a satellite of the Shrine in France. Our Lady of Lourdes Shrine has authentic stones from France which Mary, the mother of Jesus, stood upon in 1858. Many pilgrims come to the Shrine to seek the peace of prayer and drink the water that flows over the stones from France.
