2020 PENTECOST PILGRIMAGE from Paris to Chartres

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 (pilgrimage@nd-chretiente.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.

    I was just thinking about the Chartres Pilgrimage yesterday. I didn’t see how it could go on with all the mass gathering restrictions.

    No, it’s not taking place as a walking pilgrimage, as Pres. Macron announced that all large public gatherings are prohibited until mid-July. The organisers, Notre Dame de Chrétienté, informed all Chapters of this in Easter week. They are planning on organising it around livestreamed Masses and devotions from various places, it seems. We were to have had quite a large group this year, at least 30, so it’s very disappointing but totally understandable.
