Chartres–Paris, France

The Chartres pilgrimage is a huge international pilgrimage of Tradition in France in which thousands take part to walk the 110km from Chartres to Paris, over the Pentecost weekend, every year.


It a pilgrimage to the Sacred Heart through Our Lady - Chartres cathedral being the place where Our Lady's veil is venerated. The pilgrimage destination was traditionally the Sacré Coeur in Montmartre.

Over the course of three days, accompanied by a SSPX chaplain, we will walk through the French countryside with the Irish chapter, under the patronage of St. Patrick. We will sing the Rosary and hymns, meditate on God with Saint Thomas Aquinas and offer up our sore feet for our pilgrimage intentions; all while helping our fellow pilgrims along the way and enjoying the company. A certain level of fitness and preparation is required for the pilgrimage.
