I had a note from one of the organizers of the great Pentecost Chartres Pilgrimage.
I am not sure what’s going to be the situation re: pandemic in a couple weeks, but I want to make known some information about the pilgrimage.
My correspondent wrote:
We met last November at the Summorum Pontificum Congress in Rome .
I am in charge of the Chartres Pilgrimage, one of the big events we have in the Church in Europe.
Just a few figures:
- 17 000 pilgrims in 2019
- More than 15% are international pilgrims (and a lot from the US)
- 50% of pilgrims are under 20 years old [Very telling!]
- Only the Mass in the Extraordinary Form during the 3 days of pilgrimage
- More than 300 clerics,…
We would be very grateful if you could say a word on the next pilgrimage (Pentecost 2020) in your blog.
And we would be very happy to register your readers: a registration for the next Chartres Pilgrimage is very simple and free!
If necessary send an email to the following address (email@example.com) we will provide your readers with all practical information to become a Chartres pilgrim in 2020.
And there you have it.
I have not done the Chartres pilgrimage, alas, but I have always wanted to do it.
