On Friday, September 13th, the village of Leffond in the Haute-Saône region of Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, France, experienced an extraordinary day thanks the passage and reception of a group of 17 pilgrims on their way from Langres to Besançon.
Village residents welcomed the pilgrims in the presence of the Vice-President of the European Association of Via Francigena Ways, Ms Martine Gutheron.
Truly an incredible experience and exchange! That is a human adventure to live without moderation for these men and women, accompanied by the team of the Diocese of Langres to discover a section of the Via Francigena in France in its spiritual and human dimension.
In the presence of the Abbot Pascal Leseur and the management team of the bishopric, different matters were discussed: for example, accommodation and pilgrims’ welcome in France, the frequentation of the Via Francigena and many other subjects. After a night of rest, where everyone was able to sleep and relax in the village of Leffond, and a visit to the church, the group continued its trip. We wish them a good journey!
