Message for families from the Chief of Brigadiers, Pilgrimage 2017

IN COMMEMORATION OF THE MARTYRS OF NEW FRANCE

TO: Family-registrants – Pilgrimage 2017

FROM: Reuben J. DeMaster – Chief of Brigadiers

 

Congratulations on taking a first step of pilgrimage with your family to Our Lady’s Shrine of Martyrs in Auriesville, NY!

The second step is much like every other step of pilgrimage: to pray with the other pilgrim-registrants also preparing to go to Auriesville. Indeed, prayer & penance is the beginning and end — the very reason — of the pilgrimage. The way of a pilgrim is the habit of ceaseless prayer. I. Thessalonians v, 17

That’s why the Fathers-chaplain ask each pilgrim to pray daily the very short prayer composed by St. Nicholas of Flüe.

Find it on this page of the Pilgrimage blog.

“He who sings well, prays twice.” (Attributed to St. Augustine of Hippo.) Why not multiply your praying power by learning or practicing some of the many songs sung on pilgrimage?

Click here to request your own copy of the Songs of Pilgrimage CD or the video documentary. Or paste the URL into your browser. http://national-coalition.org/w/songs-of-pilgrimage-order-form

Listening while you walk (to get your ‘souls’ in shape) or while putzing around the house is a great way to prepare the days of grace.

Find the Pilgrimage media here.

Please let me hear from you if you await the brigade assignment/s for your family, or if you have any questions about brigade-life. Click here to e-mail me.

Godspeed!

NOTE WELL

Veterans know there is never a better time than now to commence preparations. And there never seems to be enough time, no matter how long in advance one registers.

Please therefore contact your brigadier as soon as possible to get started. If you don’t know or cannot reach him or her, drop me an e-mail.

Some of the brigades already have blogs. If yours doesn’t, please encourage your brigadier to start one. You, he or she can contact the Pilgrimage’s Vice-Director for Communications, Samantha Lang, for ideas.

Why must I submit the transportation request form?

The shuttle is provided to enable you to recover your vehicle at the end of the pilgrimage, Sunday afternoon.

In the event you use public transportation (PT), the organizers also will shuttle you to and from the PT terminal.

In every case, plain-pilgrims & pilgrim-organizers need to plan, together, in advance.

Submitting the shuttle request facilitates your transportation in the afternoon or evening on Thursday, September 27, from the Auriesville Shrine to Lake George Village, and again bright & early Friday morning from motel to check-in (which every pilgrim must do) right before Mass and step-off.

Submit the form only after registering and submitting the fee.

message for pilgrim-registrants from the Director, Pilgrimage 2017

Memorandum

TO: Pilgrim-registrants – Pilgrimage 2017

FROM: Greg Lloyd, Director – Pilgrimage for Restoration

 

A pilgrim is one who prays on The Way to the destination of his prayers.

After registering, what are the first steps of pilgrimage to prepare well for & make the best of the spiritual journey?

  1.   First & foremost, our Chaplains ask each pilgrim & brigade to offer daily the three-line prayer composed by St. Nicholas of Flüe. Find this easy-to-memorize prayer on this page of the Pilgrimage blog.
  2.   To keep abreast of developments and messages to pilgrims, and for helpful practical tips — about things like packing, transportation, camping/lodgings, gear, food, etc. — subscribe to the Pilgrimage blog. http://pilgrimage-for-restoration.org/blog/
  3.   You can also join the Pilgrimage’s Facebook group.
  4.   Looking for a ride to pilgrimage? Get in on the pilgrims’ forum, and form a car-pool — or make other plans with fellow-pilgrims for brigade life, camps, you name it.
  5.   Would you like your family to learn or practice some of the many songs sung on pilgrimage?

    Click here to request a CD or cassette of the Pilgrimage’s very own Songs of Pilgrimage or the documentary video. Or paste the URL into your browser. http://national-coalition.org/w/songs-of-pilgrimage-order-form

    Listening while you walk (to get your ‘souls’ in shape) or work around the house is a great way to prepare the days of grace.

A blessed pilgrimage!

message for pilgrim-registrants about shuttle service, car-pools, and transportation all 3 days of Pilgrimage 2017

Memorandum

TO: Pilgrim-registrants, Pilgrimage 2017

FROM: Dennis P. Mitchell, R.O. – Transportation-Team
      d.mitchell.pilgrimage@gmail.com – Co. of St. René Goupîl

 

After completing registration, be sure also to submit the transportation form, to coordinate with organizers your arrival at the pilgrimage starting point Thursday, 28 September, and in order to guarantee retrieval of your vehicle after the final Mass Sunday, October 1.

Even if you or the group you are traveling with intend to keep your vehicle throughout the pilgrimage, we ask you to submit the form, to tell us that.

Please don’t delay. The sooner my colleagues & I know your plans, the sooner your itinerary can be fixed and together we can all help fellow pilgrims looking for rides to the region from ‘all over the map’.

Please also visit the online pilgrims’ forum to interact with fellow pilgrims, including to help those looking to car-pool to the starting-point, and back home.

Lots of pilgrims are looking for rides to step-off. Information you offer to others in the forum, and by submitting the transportation form, can be used to help arrange car-pools.

Please contact me if you have any questions about transportation.

A blessed pilgrimage!

Submit the form only after registering & submitting the fee.

Should I use the “individual/group” webform to register for Pilgrimage 2015?

Who should use the “individual/group” webform webform to register for Pilgrimage 2015?

1. Use this form to register yourself — that is, once you have decided to make pilgrimage and are ready to submit the registration fee in full.

2. Use the same form to register at least one other person with you — again, assuming you both have decided to make pilgrimage and are ready to submit the full fee.

3. Use the same form to register yourself, together with at least two other pilgrims also ready to submit the fee, in order to avail of the group discount.

Group discounts are available until June 1.
The same webform may be used anytime before or after after June 1, although after June 1 the discount rate may apply only on ‘discount days’ in honor of Our Blessed Lady and certain Jesuit saints on their feasts. (Check the blog.)

Who should NOT use the “individual/group” webform?

1. Do NOT use the “individual/group” webform if you are finding it difficult to pay the full fee, and intend to ask the charity of family & friends to sponsor you with “alms for palms”.

In that case, please first PRE-register using this webform, and thereafter ask the charity of family & friends to sponsor you with “alms for palms”.

2. Do NOT use the “individual/group” webform if you wish to register a family for more than one day.

In that case, use the family webform to register a family participating for more than one day.

3. Do NOT use the “individual/group” webform if you wish to register yourself, your family or a group for Sunday’s events only.

In that case, click here to register for Sunday’s events only.

Click here to return to the registration webform, to continue registration.

DO NOT USE the registration webform to PRE-register.

Should I submit the CSRG application – for example, even if I am not returning to service in September?

Yes, you should submit the application form even if you plan NOT to return to service in the Company of St. René Goupîl (CSRG) come September.

Why?

In order to:

  • notify fellow organizers of your plans — since they will need to know they must make plans without you this season; also to
  • identify a replacement; and, to
  • avail of the merits of your fellow-CSRGers’ prayers & acts of mercy.
  • The CSRGer who is not returning should choose check-box option nbr. 3, immediately following the “My Contact Info” section.

    Who else should use the same CSRG application form?

    1. A CSRG member returning to service in 2015 should use the same form to re-apply.

    In that case, the applicant should choose check-box option nbr. 1 immediately following the “My Contact Info” section on the form.

    2. A pilgrim applying to the CSRG for the first time should submit the same form.

    In that case, the applicant should choose check-box option nbr. 2 immediately following the “My Contact Info” section on the form.

    Who should NOT use the CSRG application form?

    Pilgrim-volunteers belonging to Divisions of organization other than the CSRG use a different form.

    Contact the Pilgrimage Director for information about that.
