Flatrock - Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto

From Canada's historic places:
"...Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto has spiritual significance to the community of Flatrock and beyond through its connection with the expression and practise of the Roman Catholic faith. The Grotto is situated on the grounds of St. Michael’s, the community’s only church. Construction of the Grotto began in 1954, the first Marian Year in honour of the Blessed Virgin Mary, as proclaimed by Pope Leo XII. That year, Reverend Father William Sullivan of St. Michael’s Parish went on pilgrimage to the Marian grotto of Massabielle, the famous Grotto of Lourdes, France..."
