France | August 9 - 18
The Pilgrim Project is excited to lead its inaugural pilgrimage to France, the Eldest Daughter of the Church. Pilgrims will explore the spiritual heart of medieval France, from the birth of gothic architecture at the abbey at Chartres and Paris, to the great cathedrals of Burgundy at Autumn and Vezelay. Along the way, pilgrims will learn more about how prayer shaped medieval culture and consider ways it can do so again in the 21st Century. Pilgrims will also journey through the historic sites of Normandy, where World War II expert Alan Sears will tell the incredible story of incredible sacrifice, bravery, and virtuous leadership.
