#var:page_name# cover

On March 16 in the year 1244, the defenders of the Cathars and approximately 200 of the remaining Perfecti were burned alive in the field below the last remaining Cathar stronghold, Montsegur. We commemorate the loss of the Cathar Gnostics, who died in the only crusade preached against fellow Christians.
We will commemorate Montsegur Day with a Candlelight Procession, followed by Solemn Vespers for the Cathar Martyrs.

Intent: Martyrdom of the Holy Cathars (Montségur Day)
