Five years ago, the French and the world mourned as Notre-Dame Cathedral burned before their very eyes. This dramatic event touched hearts and provoked great emotion around the world. A shared heritage and cultural landmark, Paris Cathedral is also a powerful symbol of worship for believers, who were deeply affect.

After several years of work, thanks to support from all over the world and the unfailing commitment of all those involved, Notre-Dame has risen from the ashes. Its reopening is a historic moment and an opportunity to march behind the Blessed Virgin.

At a time when the Church seems to be crumbling, a new fervor is taking shape. God’s people are on the march. They are called to give thanks and to implore Mary to spread the Good News of the Gospel in people’s hearts.

The great saints who have gone before us have shown us the way. Let’s set of together!

“Actions speak louder than words. Let your words teach, let your deeds speak.”  Saint Anthony of Padua

The pilgrimage

Visit 7 routes Notre-Dame is the first national pilgrimage to mark the rebirth of Paris Cathedral.

From July 28, 2024 and for 7 weeks, 7 routes criss-crossing France will converge on the cathedral, under the patronage of 7 great saints carried in procession. Everyone will be able to join the route closed to them, alone or in a group, for as long as they like.

A prayer vigil will be held in Paris on September 14 to celebrate the arrival at Notre-Dame, followed by a Mass on September 15 celebrated at Saint Sulpice by Mgr Ulrich, Archbishop of Paris.

Rooted in love for the Church and driven by the desire for unity, the 7 routes Notre-Dame pilgrimage is aimed at all those who let themselves be touched by Mary’s call.

Supported by the President of the French Bishops’ Conference, Mgr de Moulins-Beaufort, and many other bishops, it aims to unite all sensibilities around the same faith in Jesus Christ.

“For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ.”
Saint Paul
