From the outside of the house, one will not notice that a hidden gem of the grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes is to be graced when one enters the Franciscan house of the Friars of the Immaculate in Kauswagan.
Towering up to approximately 12 feet high, the replica of Our Lady of Lourdes in France is to be seen outside the friary. The imitation of the cave and grotto of Massabielle in Lourdes, the provision of an altar at the bottom which allows priest to celebrate Mass outside for bigger crowd, and the sheltered area for people to visit and participate outside Eucharist, makes this little place a pilgrim destination.
Envisioned by Fr. Maximilian Ciar together with the generous help of generous benefactors, the Grotto of Lourdes will certainly become a haven of devotion for those who have opportunity to pass by the area in Kauswagan.
