The Hôtel Paradis commitment
The Hôtel Paradis, situated closed to the sanctuary, has made for a committed choice by creating an offering geared to today’s real needs for families and to the needs of priests.
Opting for the Family Deal proposed by the Hôtel Paradis in Lourdes is your way of contributing to support the formation of priests.
For every family and every night spent, the Hotel donates €5 to the Communauté St Martin for the formation of seminarians.
The Communauté St Martin
- founded in 1976 in the renewal of the Vatican II’s Council,
- priests and secular deacons,
- sent in groups of at least three to live and minister in community,
- at the disposition of Catholic bishops for missions assigned to them.
The Communauté Saint-Martin is present in France in around twenty dioceses, and abroad (Cuba, Rome, Genoa).
Today it comprises 97 priests and deacons, 95 seminarians and 14 young people in foundation course.
The Formation of a seminarian costs €16,000 p.a.
