Pilgrimages of Tradition to Notre Dame

Pentecost pilgrimage of the Tradition 2019

(Paris) From Saturday, June 8, to Whit Monday, June 10, the 37th International Pentecost Pilgrimage of Tradition takes place from Paris to Chartres. Starting point of the pilgrimage was the cathedral Notre-Dame de Paris, which was engulfed in flames on the evening of April 15.

From Paris to Chartres

"Even if it burned down ... on to Paris for the Whit Pilgrimage 2019 from Paris to Chartres!", is what it reads in the flyer.

Pentecost Pilgrimage 2019 of the Ecclesia Dei communities

The pilgrimage of 2019 is under the motto "The peace of Christ through the kingdom of Christ.” The Organizing Committee is close to the so-called Ecclesia Dei communities, which are in full unity with the Church. The altar service will be performed this year by the Institute of Christ King and Sovereign Priest.

The pilgrimage led so far from the Marian Cathedral of Paris to the Marian Cathedral of Chartres. The goal remains the same, the new starting point, where the Holy Mass is celebrated at the beginning of the pilgrimage, has not yet been announced. The organizers of the committee Notre-Dame de Chrétienté are looking for a suitable substitute able to welcome the large crowd of mainly young pilgrims.

"This year's pilgrimage has received a special significance because of the fire. Let us hurry to Paris, to Notre-Dame, in the name of tradition! "

Information and participation on the official website for the pilgrimage: Notre-Dame de Chrétienté.

The US Chapter, co-ordinated by The Remnant publisher, has a new website with a video that gives an impression of the tradition of the Pentecost pilgrimage. See also the following video:

Pentecost pilgrimage 2019 of the Pius Brotherhood

First undertaken in 1983, the Pentecost pilgrimage split due to the legitimate but unauthorized episcopal ordinations, which Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre performed in 1988. Since then, a special pilgrimage on Pentecost has been carried out by the Society of St. Pius X, which takes the opposite route, that is, from Chartres to Paris. Because of her unclear canonical situation, the episcopal churches are not available to them. Also, at the starting point in Chartres and at the destination in Paris, the Holy Masses are therefore celebrated in the open air.

The Pentecost pilgrimage is organized by the Society of Saint Pius under the motto "Serving Christendom".

Both pilgrimages have in common that  they will cover the approximately 100 kilometers between Paris and Chartres and vice versa on foot.

Information and participation on the official website of the pilgrimage: Pelegrinages de Tradition.

Information and opportunities for interested pilgrims from the German-speaking countries can be found on the websites of the respective communities and their branches.

100 Kilometers: Pentecost Pilgrimage of Tradition -- Paris -- Chartres or Chartres Paris

(Paris) From 23 to the 25th of May, 2015 the great  International pilgrimage  for  tradition of Paris and Chartres will take place. Also, this year there will be, as there has been since 1989, two pilgrimages, on each of which thousands of people will participate.
The 33rd Pentecost Pilgrimage of Ecclesia Dei communities, with the official name Pèlerinage de chrétienté (Pilgrimage of Christendom),  will march about 100 kilometers from Paris to Chartres. The organizer  is the Association of Our Lady of Christendom . The motto of this year's Pentecost pilgrimage is "Jesus Christ, Savior of the world". The pilgrimage begins on Saturday, 23 May at 7:00 clock with the Holy Mass in the traditional Rite in the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. The pilgrimage route  leaves from Paris by the Ile de France to Chartres, where in the cathedral in the afternoon of Whit Monday, a Pontifical Mass will be celebrated in the traditional Rite.
The 27th Pentecost Pilgrimage of the SSPX , with the official name Pèlerinage de tradition (Pilgrimage of Tradition), will follow the reverse way from Chartres to Paris. The organizers is the Association Pèlegrinage de Tradition . The Pentecost Pilgrimage 2015 will be held under the motto "God's Angels our Protectors."  The pilgrimage begins on Saturday, 23 May at 7:45 clock with the Holy Mass in the traditional rite in Chartres next to the cathedral. Pilgrims will arrive in Paris, drawing near the Eiffel Tower to the Invalides, where a Pontifical High Mass in the Immemorial Rite will be celebrated at Place Vauban in the afternoon of Whit Monday.
Pilgrims will spend two nights each in large tent cities that are built along the pilgrimage route. The organization by numerous volunteers is outstanding. On the significance of Pentecost pilgrimage See also the report The Camp of The Saints - see Today the Church of Tomorrow (in German) .

The international pilgrimage on foot for tradition first took place in 1983 and has been held regularly over the years as the world's largest, meeting of tradition. Also the 1988/1989 break which took place breakage did not change this. The  episcopal ordinations carried out by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre without the permission of Rome in the summer of 1988 and the Motu Proprio Ecclesia Dei traditional Catholics both participate. The group standing in unity with Rome  continued commenced the pilgrimage commenced in 1983, while the SSPX in brought its own pilgrimage to life in 1989. Both pilgrimages take place at the same time and run the same route, but in reverse directions. During the Pentecost Pilgrimage of Ecclesia Dei communities will celebrate its  Masses at the cathedrals of Chartres and Paris and will be celebrated only on the second day in an open field, while the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass must take place in the open air on the pilgrimage of the SSPX.
If and when the two opposing pilgrimages are merged, no one can say. The doubling is some a nuisance because it is seen as a visible expression of an open wound. Fortunately the spiritual profit for the personal life of faith doesn't depend for most on this issue, but on attending the pilgrimage. It is physically and mentally a challenge for which both come from two directions to Mary. Both the Cathedral of Paris and Chartres Cathedral is dedicated to the Blessed Mother.

The Bishop of Versailles Will Celebrate the Concluding Mass -- 2 Times 100 km: International Pentecost Pilgramage of Tradition Between Paris and Chartres

(Paris) Bishop Marie Eric Aummonier, Bishop of Versailles, is to be the celebrant at the Cathedral of Chartres to the conclusion of this year's International Pentecost Pilgrimage of the Ecclesia Dei communities in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite on Whit Monday. This decision was announced, the organizers of the pilgrimage traditional Association Notre-Dame de Chrétienté. This is another sign that the traditional Catholics are perceived by the bishops of the region of Paris more and more as self-evidently part of the Church and recognized. The prelude was in 2010 by the Archbishop of Paris, Cardinal André Vingt-Trois, with a visit to the pilgrims in the large tent city of the three-day pilgrimage on foot, to be covered in approximately 100 kilometers from Paris to Chartres.

At Pentecost the two largest international traditional pilgrimages will take place at the same time. In addition to the pilgrimage of Fraternity of St. Peter and other Ecclesia Dei communities from Paris to Chartres, another pilgrimage takes place at the same time by the SSPX, which follows the exact opposite way from Chartres to Paris. Both pilgrimages originally go back to the same origin. As when the SSPX came to a break because Rome did not allow episcopal ordinations in 1988 and the Fraternity of St. Peter and the Ecclesia Dei communities emerged, also share the pilgrimage.

The pilgrimage of the Fraternity can use the cathedrals, which is why the Holy Mass is celebrated at the beginning in the cathedral of Paris and the conclusion is at the Cathedral of Chartres. The SSPX are still denied this, which is why Holy Mass is celebrated at the beginning of the pilgrimage outside the Cathedral of Chartres in the open air, as the concluding Mass at Les Invalides in Paris. At these two largest pilgrimages of tradition together, tens of thousands of believers will participate.

There are still free spots at the SSPX. The American group will be led by Father Patrick Rutledge.
