Travel and Hotel Information

As a chapter, we are not coordinating group travel or hotel rooms. Instead each pilgrim that wants to walk in our group will be responsible for booking their own flight and making their own hotel arrangements before and after the pilgrimage. Any pilgrim that would like to walk with our chapter will just meet up with us at the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris the morning the pilgrimage starts. We welcome any and all that want to participate in the 2014 pilgrimage.

Stained Glass History – Chartres Cathedral

The Chartres Cathedral has many distinct features including its historic and beautiful stained glass windows. Of the 176 windows of the cathedral, the majority were originally completed between 1200 and 1235. The picture (courtesy Medievalart.org) you see is from Panel 11 – Four Angels bearing columns supporting the throne of wisdom. For more information on the stained glass of the Chartres Cathedral check out the great feature below from ChartresCathedral.net
