Anniversary Peace Pilgrimage to Vezelay

To mark the 70 anniversary of an international post-war peace pilgrimage to Vezelay in France members of Pax Christi and Student Cross are taking part in a mini-pilgrimage from Auxerre to Vezelay. Pat Gaffney of Pax Christi is using this opportunity to raise funds for the Christian Peace Education Fund.

Read here about the 60 anniversary and of the links with Fr Columban Ryan op who took part in the 1946 pilgrimage.

Here you can read about/see some of the history ( in French) and the pilgrimage made this July on the feast of St Mary Magdalene, to whom the Abbey is dedicated.

Please pray for those who will be walking.
