The Chartres pilgrimage is over for another year.
As always, our pilgrimage began in Paris on Friday.
This year we had the Holy Mass at the Church of St. Séverin in the afternoon followed by Benediction and evening prayer at the Irish College. Our chaplain Fr. Cahill was unable to join us but he was with us in spirit as we journeyed towards Chartres. We were blessed to have Fr. Gabriel Burke waking with our chapter as chaplain this year.
We had a small but wonderful group of 18 pilgrims, who sang, prayed and remained cheerful in spite of the torrential rain that accompanied us on our pilgrimage. This year meditations were focused on the theme of education. The patron saints for each day were St. Don Bosco, St. Jean Baptise de la Salle, and Ss. Joachim and Anne.
Thank you to all who prayed for us during the three days.
The dates for the next pilgrimage are: June 7-9 2014
Chartres sonne, Chartres t'appelle!
Gloire, honneur au Chritst-Roy!
