Question #4 – “Where can a pilgrim stay overnight Thursday, to be ready for step-off early Friday morning?” 2020

Once you’ve registered, begun to pray with fellow pilgrims, and requested the shuttle, it’s time to make plans to overnight Thursday in order to be ready for holy Mass and step-off bright & early Friday morning.

There are two choices, which are as follows, in order of pilgrim-popularity:

1.   Stay at the one of the motels in Shartlesville, or in Hamburg.

The Company of St. René Goupil volunteers will shuttle pilgrims to Mtn. Springs Camping Resort Thursday afternoon/evening and then to step-off Friday morning, provided they have requested the shuttle in advance.

2.   Camp at Mtn. Springs Camping Resort.

Camping there is charged per site – NOT per camper – and is also not included in the pilgrimage registration fee. Pilgrims arrange sharing sites with other pilgrims upon arrival. Reservations are strongly recommended.  Every pilgrim must pay the management in advance or on site, at the campground entrance office, on arrival, as soon after as possible, preferably before nightfall.

The Company of St. René Goupil volunteers will shuttle pilgrims to the campground Thursday afternoon/evening, provided they have requested the shuttle in advance.

There is no need to shuttle pilgrims from campground to step-off Friday morning, since rendezvous & step-off is within walking distance.
