Schedule – Sunday’s events

Sunday there are two new options to participate.

    OPTION A. – Designed for those who wish to join the main column at lunchtime and walk the last several miles to the destination Shrine at Auriesville. Option A is for everybody except parents pushing strollers or seniors ‘pushing 80’!

In other words, NO strollers are permitted with pilgrims who choose Option A.

    OPTION B. – Ideal for the ‘STROLLER BRIGADE!’ and for seniors who are able to walk just the last few miles with the column, along the canalway bike path.

Option B is for parents pushing strollers, the still-ambulatory-elderly, and other pilgrims not ready to make ‘modified pilgrimage’ all three days.

If you choose Option A, follow these instructions:

To coordinate plans with organizers, please first to register for Sunday’s events.

Then print out the following instructions and directions:

  1. Arrive by 10:30 A.M. Sunday morning at the Auriesville Shrine Visitor Center and cafeteria parking lot.
  2. There, the Field Marshal of Sunday’s events will greet and direct you to shuttle to the rendezvous point, in order to meet the column on the road, at lunchtime. LAST SHUTTLE DEPARTS AT 11:00 A.M.
  3. After lunch you walk the last 7 miles to the destination shrine with the main column.

When you register, you may choose the option to volunteer to shuttle pilgrims to the ‘Option-A lunchtime rendezvous‘.

An e-mail is sent directly to the Field Marshal when you choose that option. You may also communicate directly with him after registering, if you have questions.

After delivering pilgrims to the rendezvous point, pilgrim drivers return to the Auriesville Shrine to pray or venerate the holy sites.

If you choose Option B, follow these instructions:

To coordinate plans with organizers, please first to register for Sunday’s events.

These are the steps you then need to take:

  1. Arrive by 12-noon at Auriesville Shrine Visitor Center and cafeteria parking lot.
  2. There, the Field Marshal of Sunday’s events will greet and direct you to walk, in brigades, to the rendezvous point, in order to meet the column on the canalway bike path just south of Ft. Hunter. LAST BRIGADE DEPARTS AT 12:30 P.M. (No pilgrim may walk unattached to a brigade.)
  3. Then you walk back to the destination Shrine along canalway trail path to pray the crowning Mass at 3:15 P.M.

Register no later than September 14 if you wish to volunteer to lead pilgrims in your group on foot to the ‘Option-B rendezvous’.

Please be considerate of fellow pilgrims and the responsibilities of organizers to prepare for the events Sunday. Please register today for Sunday!
