Question #9 – “Who supplies what for whom, and when?”

Organizers supply bottled water throughout, and supplement meals with hot soup & bread in the evening and hot water & bread with jam at breakfast.

Pilgrims supply their own powdered coffee, hot chocolate, tea bags, instant hot breakfast cereal, as well as cups, plates, bowls, spoons et cetera at each meal.

The Company of St. René Goupîl’s volunteers help pilgrims throughout. The Company provides some first-aid for foot-sore, blistered pilgrims. The volunteers also transport pilgrims’ gear from camp to camp — and give rides to weary walkers, too. They also help to prepare bivouacs along the way. Pilgrims assist one another — especially the women & children — to pitch tents.

Friday and Saturday’s privately owned sites are equipped with running water, toilets, a few showers and wash basins, with remote electrical supply only.

Pilgrim families or/and seniors participating in the “Modified Pilgrimage” may park RVs at each private campsite for an additional fee paid directly to the campsite personnel or owners on location.

In every instance, parents or seniors contact the manager/owner directly, optimally in advance.

Pilgrims may camp Sunday night at the Martyrs’ Shrine, but there is no hook-up or water on site. Pilgrims must obtain written permission from the Pilgrimage Coordinator at the Shrine. beth.lynch@martyrshrine.org

Pilgrims staying overnight in the area make reservations at local lodgings. See this page for info.

“No one makes pilgrimage alone.”
Oremus pro invicem.
In unione orationum.
Ad majorem Dei gloriam.
