This Pentecost mass was presided over by Dean Robert Zuber, diocesan director of French-speaking Valais. The homily was delivered by Mgr Rémy Berchier, French-speaking director of the pilgrimage. Don Anne-Guillaume Vernaeckt, chaplain of the Sanctuary of Lourdes, welcomed the Swiss pilgrims, and the Jura abbot Pierre Rebetez concelebrated. The songs of the liturgy were provided by the Pilgrimage Choir, directed by Emmanuel Pittet and accompanied on the organ by Edmond Voeffray.

A world premiere Mass

The readings and universal prayer were delivered by Anne-Marie Kolly, Véronique Denis, Marie-Claude Favre, Françoise Michellod, Catherine Oberson and Claudine Rossier. Composed for the occasion by choir director Emmanuel Pittet, a Mass in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary was sung as a world premiere during today’s liturgy.

Pilgrims and the sick were able to experience this celebration via the internet and the airwaves during their train or bus journey. The mass was produced in images by Fabrice Junod, of Cleanfeed, and presented by Grégory Roth, for Cath-Info and RTS-Espace2.
