Something for everybody
Families with children under 12 or seniors who prefer a minimum of walking can make a ‘modified’ pilgrimage.
More time is spent in camp in prayer, confessing, receiving spiritual counsel or sermons, singing, and enjoying the fellowship of other pilgrims.
Children also learn catechism and play with other young pilgrims.
Modified pilgrimage participants are organized into their own distinct brigade and thus pray together at Holy Mass. They also walk with the rest of the column, typically at step-off in the mornings, and as the main column approaches camp in the evening.
Special transportation arrangements and help in bivouacs are organized by the Vice-Director for Modified Events with (limited) assistance from the Company of St. René Goupîl.
