Theme for 2011

The theme for Chartres 2011 is "The Gospel of Life" and so this year's Pilgrimage will, in effect, be a great Pro Life March.  Each day of Pilgrimage has a sub-theme and a Patron Saint.  On the first day of Pilgrimage, the "saint" will be Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta and the sub-theme is "The Gospel of Life, a Gift of God"; on Pentecost Sunday, our patron is Saint Maria Goretti and the sub-theme is "The Gospel of Life, a Gift for Man"; and the Patron for Pentecost Monday is Our Lady of Guadalupe and the sub-theme is "Proclaim the Gospel of Life."  Under the information section of this Website, there are biographies of Blessed Mother Teresa and St. Maria Goretti and information on Our Lady of Guadalupe can be accessed by clicking the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe. There is also a Presentation of the Theme for 2011 here.  Rally under the Banner of Life!
