Fly to Toulouse then take a train. Lourdes is two hours by train from Toulouse. There is a frequent bus from the airport to the railway station.

Alitalia, Air France and Easyjet all fly between the two cities.

I know that there are organised pilgrimages but that is something to ask in Rome.

Depends on what is best to you.

I was contemplating on doing Rome and Lourdes on the same trip recently, but decided not to because of the limited flight options. But that shouldn't stop you from going from Rome To Lourdes.

There is no direct flight from Rome to Lourdes, you have to connect in Paris ORLY.

Or you can fly to one of the nearby towns from Rome direct, eg. Toulouse or Bordeaux, then take a train to Lourdes.

Check the train schedule on http://en.voyages-sncf.com/en/

You might not be able to catch the last train if your flight gets in late.

If you prefer to travel with a pilgrimage group you should contact www.operaromanapellegrinaggi.org/homepage.php or http://www.unitalsissroma.it/ They may also offer seat only deals for independent pilgrims on their direct charter flights to Lourdes.
