The Sanctuaries of Lourdes forged a european network marial, linking the great centers of pilgrimage devoted to the Virgin Mary.  Each Sanctuary has its own particular atmosphere.  Pilgrims find a source of enrichment in one Sanctuary or another.
The European Marian Network links twenty Sanctuaries the same as the number of decades in the Rosary. Many of them are situated behind the former Iron Curtain. Almost every European country is represented in the European Marian Network.  The best known Sanctuary of each country was chosen. Under different titles, the Blessed Virgin Mary is venerated in every country in different ways and by different Christian confessions. May Mary help nations to grow in union with each other and bring unity between all Christians. The European Marian Network was formed in 2003 with the encouragement of Rome.
The Sanctuary Animators from the members of the Network meet each year to get to know each other better and, above all, to understand better the needs of the millions of pilgrims and visitors who frequent these Sanctuaries.
