On Sunday October 13th, the festival celebrating the arrival of the "Tour de France" of l'OCH gathered thousand of people. After the arrival of the "pilgrims" of the tour de France at the Luxembourg garden at 10.30am, we all started the festive walk, on foot, or on joëlette (single-wheel trekking chair), or in a wheelchair... down to Notre Dame Cathedral. Many communities came with their banner for this special day. This wonderful walk together reminded us the Faith and Light pilgrimages !
Following the festive show in front of the Cathedral, a beautiful thanksgiving mass took place inside of Notre Dame, celebrated by Mgr de Dinechin (Auxiliary Bishop of Paris). When the universal prayer was said, a very colorful Faith and Light procession gathered our special friends, their parents, friends and a chaplain, representing the whole Faith and Light family !
