Latin Mass Society

Annual Pilgrimage to Chartres

Annual Pilgrimage to Chartres Friday 2nd – Tuesday 6th June 2017

This year marks the 35th Chartres Pilgrimage – a walk of 70 miles in three days from Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris, to Notre Dame Cathedral, Chartres – with the theme: “Holy Mary, Mother of God”. His Eminence Raymond Cardinal Burke will celebrate Mass in Chartres Cathedral.

The British contingent of the Pilgrimage gather on Friday 2nd June for Mass in Westminster Cathedral crypt at 7.00am and then board a coach for Calais at 7.30am.  Each day throughout the Pilgrimage the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass will be offered and the Holy Rosary will be prayed.  Confession and spiritual guidance will both be available throughout each day.

On Tuesday 6th June 2017, there will be Mass in the crypt of Chartres Cathedral, before the coach takes pilgrims back to England via the Eurotunnel, arriving at Westminster Cathedral at about 8.00pm.

The Latin Mass Society is subsidising the cost of the pilgrimage for five young people (must be ages 18 to 35). The normal price per person is £275, but the LMS is reducing that to £175 per person for each of the five sponsored places. For those who prefer a single hotel room, as opposed to sharing with a person of the same sex, there is a single-occupancy supplement of £60 - payable by the pilgrim.

If you are not a young adult (18-35), but would like to attend the Chartres Pilgrimage, please visit and book via the Chartres Pilgrimage UK website.

PLEASE NOTE: ALL LMS BURSARIES HAVE NOW BEEN ALLOCATED. The closing date for applications, and for final payment to be received, is FRIDAY, 24 MARCH.
