Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto at St. Lucy’s Church, A Place That Matters

Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto at St. Lucy’s Church, nominated by Susan Lally.

You can visit Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto at 833 Mace Ave., in the Bronxdale neighborhood of the Bronx. It’s an arresting 30′ high stone structure, constructed in 1939 at the request of Monsignor Pasquale Lombardo who wanted to offer his parishioners a close-to-home replica of the famous grotto in Lourdes, France. Waters reputed to have healing powers fall from a small waterfall within the grotto, and still, after 68 years, continue to draw the faithful.

Nominator Susan Lally mentions that St. Lucy’s also has spectacular catacombs which are now closed to the public. We welcome any information about this space.
