First Images and Reports from the Chartres Pilgrimage

With this past weekend seeing the celebration of the great feast of Pentecost that also means that this past weekend saw the occurrence of another annual event we look forward to covering here each year: the Chartres Pilgrimage organized by Notre Dame de Chretiente (NDC).

Initial reports by NDC tell us that over 190 chapters are participating in this year's pilgrimage. Additionally, Mgr. Eric Aumônier, the Bishop of Versailles, made a walkabout visit at the beginning of the pilgrimage, greeting many of the pilgrims.

The Mass which opens the pilgrimage was hosted at Notre-Dame de Paris with Bishop Jean-Yves Nahmias, the auxiliary bishop of Paris, giving the homily. In his homily, the bishop called the pilgrims to the "heroic witness of holiness... relying on Christ and the Holy Spirit."

Here are just a few images so far:

Here also is some local video coverage from this year's pilgrimage:
