ChartresFr John Zuhlsdorf blogs — 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 ( 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.
