Including the 3-Day SSPX Walking Pilgrimage Chartres-Paris
MAY 10-21, 2013
Once again Fr. Patrick Rutledge is leading our
Youth Pilgrimage for faithful of the Society of St. Pius X. This time, we
begin by visiting Portugal and Spain, and then crossing over into France to join the
3-day, 65-mile walking pilgrimage from Chartres to Paris organized each year
by the SSPX in France.
In Portugal, we will visit Fatima, where in
1917, the Mother of God appeared to three shepherd children to ask for
consolation and reparation for sins committed against her Immaculate
Heart. We will pray before the tombs of Jacinta, Francisco and Lucia,
visit the Little Chapel of Apparitions, the children’s homes, and the
prison where they were detained after they saw the Blessed Virgin.
In Spain, we will visit Santiago de
the third most important Catholic pilgrimage site of the Middle Ages
and home of the relics of St. James the Apostle; then Burgos, housing
Spain’s third-largest cathedral with the tomb of El Cid and his wife;
and finally Loyola, the birthplace of St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder
of the Jesuits.
Crossing over into France, we will visit
where in 1858, the Blessed Virgin appeared 18 times to St. Bernadette
Soubirous at the Grotte Massabielle. See the Basilica; the Grotto
where Our Lady appeared to St. Bernadette; Boly Mill where St.
Bernadette was born; and the “Cachot,” an abandoned prison where her
impoverished family lived at the time of the apparitions.
And in Chartres, we will join thousands
of other traditional faithful for the walking pilgrimage to Paris.

this trip has been the greatest experience and I will remember it my
whole life! We had a great group of people and getting to know new
places and people was a blast. Everything was so well organized that
I think we saw everything possible in the time we had. Thank you so
much for everything. God bless."
"This trip was
absolutely amazing. Everything was very well organized so everything
went smoothly and was very fun. Thank you so much for all you did
for us. You did a great job."
"This was the greatest experience ever! Everything was better than
expected; thank you SO much! Next time you plan another trip let me
know! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!! God bless!"
"This trip was a tremendous blessing. Our group leader and Fr.
Rutledge, along with all of the group, were great fellow pilgrims.
It was well organized while being flexible to unforeseen
circumstances. I would definitely go on another Youth Pilgrimage and
I very much appreciate this spiritual opportunity and hope this
pilgrimage will continue yearly far into the future."
