Lourdes United

July 2020 - Lourdes

Realize the 1st world e-pilgrimage to Lourdes to allow everyone to gather for a day around the Grotto of Apparitions, with a 3-hour TV program as a climax, bringing together many great speakers (religious and civil society) on the set or pre-recorded, and broadcast on the TV Lourdes channel Lourdes and on partnerchannels.

This Havas Village project (Havas Events, Havas Paris, HRCLS) was created in less than a month by combining the different expertise of the agencies (content, production, scenography, technical, artistic, communication, digital, PR, e-influence and audiovisual production).


Promote the actions of the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes among pilgrims and the general public to spread its values, its messages of hope and mutual aid, and launch an appeal for help following the decreasein donations due to the absence of pilgrims during the COVID-19 crisis.
