Biggest Ever Chartres Pilgrimage

The organisers of the Chartres Pilgrimage, which takes place over the Whitsun weekend, have been forced to close registrations 15 days before the commencement of the event, due to an unprecedented number of applications.  A limit of 16,000 pilgrims has been applied for practical reasons.

The size of the pilgrimage has grown steadily in recent years, but applications for the 2023 pilgrimage have shown an unprecedented 33% leap.

Pilgrims from 22 countries will be taking part, including about 300 priests and religious.  In the past, the Chartres Pilgrimage has been very much a youth movement, with the average age of pilgrims being about 20.  However, this year's registrations have seen a surge in adult participants, with many more families taking part.

This picture, taken some years ago shows some of the British pilgrims.
