message for pilgrim-registrants from the Chief of Brigadiers, Pilgrimage 2017

Memorandum

TO: Pilgrim-registrants – Pilgrimage 2017

FROM: Reuben J. DeMaster – Chief of Brigadiers

 

Congratulations on taking a first step of pilgrimage 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 unceasing prayer. I. Thessalonians v, 17

That’s why the Pilgrimage Chaplains ask each pilgrim to pray daily the three-line prayer composed by St. Nicholas of Flüe. Find it on this page of the Pilgrimage blog.

Find the pilgrims’ three-line prayer on the blog at http://pilgrimage-for-restoration.org/blog/?p=2373

“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?

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. Request your own copy of the Songs of Pilgrimage CD or the video documentary DVD.

    Please let me hear from you if you await your brigade assignment, or if you have any questions about brigade-life. Please ask your fellow-brigadesmen or women to do the same. 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 an e-mail to my colleague, Mike Six, Emeritus Chief of Brigadiers.

Some of the brigades already have blogs. If yours doesn’t, please encourage your brigadier to start one. You, he or she can contact me for ideas.

About the invitation to volunteer for Pilgrimage 2017

Memorandum

TO: Those invited to volunteer for the Pilgrimage 2017

FROM: Paul Farynaz, Vice-Director for Recruitment

 

Do please join us on pilgrimage.

    To learn a little something about the Pilgrimage for Restoration — now in its 22nd year — as well as the rôle of volunteers, please click here.

    You can also learn about the pilgrimage and the volunteers by visiting the other sites listed in the signature lines, below.

    This overview, a chart of the organization structure, can help as well.

    In case you’d prefer just to be a ‘plain-vanilla’ pilgrim — that is, without volunteering — then it only takes a minute or so to register.

    If you’re not yet sure about making the trip to Auriesville, you can PRE-register.

    If you’d like to learn about one special patron of the volunteers, you might also see the letter of St. Isaac Jogues, recounting the martyrdom of St. René Goupîl.

Drop me an e-mail if you have any questions.

Until soon, ad majorem Dei gloriam!

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, the organizers also will shuttle you to and from the PT terminal.

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

Submitting the shuttle request facilitates your transportation in the afternoon or evening on Thursday, September 22, from Auriesville 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 & 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.
