of the pilgrimage
The Association “Notre-Dame de Chrétienté” (“Our Lady of Christendom”) organizes every year at Pentecost a pilgrimage from Cathedral Notre-Dame de Paris to Cathedral Notre-Dame de Chartres (France): three days to live and build the Christendom of the third millennium. Covering within three days a distance of approximately 60 miles, the pilgrims walk in “chapters” under the patronage of a saint. The pilgrimage has about 250 chapters each comprising around fifty pilgrims from all over France and even abroad (USA, Great Britain, Australia, Poland, Canada, Spain, etc. …).
The chapters are led by laymen who, with the help of chaplains, organise the chapter hymns, meditations, rosary and prayers. The pilgrims live in a spirit of Christ’s presence: friendship and prayer sustaining each pilgrim on his spiritual journey.
