The schools name, the name of the person in charge of the group and his/her contacts, the number of students and accompaniers, and the date schedule, must be indicated in the email.
Groups must not exceed a total of 60 people.
It is necessary to respect the schedules once the Shrine has many other activities that cannot happen simultaneously.
The program can be adjusted to each group specificities.
In The Chapel of the Apparitions, it is possible to offer flowers to Our Lady; eventually, the group can say a prayer or sing a chanting. In this case, texts and chants must be previously sent for approval.
The group is accompanied by a Shrine staff member that guides the visit; teachers or catechists have entire responsibility over the students.
