Following an update to the Notre Dame de Chretiente website and confirmation from Clarkes, we have updated the Itinerary. Please take a look. The most serious changes are to the times and places of Mass during the Pilgrimage and the place for lunch on Whit Monday. Departure times from London and return to London are unchanged.

Less than 2 months to go! Our Coach from London is now full and we will be joined in Paris by a group of 18 Americans from St. Ann's, Still River. There has been very little from the French organisers of late providing news of any changes to the programme, so assume everything is unchanged for the time being. Unfortunately, it appears that our usual driver, Colin, will not be able to join us this year as he has left Clarkes, so we will need to break in a new driver. Colin has been taking us for about 10 years and knows all of our idiosyncrasies, so he is bound to be missed.
Can I still Join?
The Pilgrimage proper starts at 6 AM at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris on Saturday, 11 June, so you can join the British Chapters there. You will obviously need to make your own travel and accommodation arrangements. Your luggage should be put on the lorry marked "Etrangers." You should be able to spot the British chapters amongst the crowd as we should be the only ones flying the the Union flag! However, we will need your Registration Form with a cheque for £40.00 to cover the Registration Fee. Please note that we must know that you are coming in order to allocate you to the appropriate chapter, provide a hymn book and allocate tent space as necessary. It is not possible to “turn up and go!” We will need the Registration Form by 10 May (Updated!) in order to have time to complete the registration procedures with the French organisers.
