message for pilgrim-registrants from the Director, Pilgrimage 2015

Memorandum

TO: Pilgrim-registrants – Pilgrimage 2015

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.stblogs.com
  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?

    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 families from the Chief of Brigadiers, Pilgrimage 2015

Memorandum

TO: Family-registrants – Pilgrimage 2015

FROM: Michael J. Lohman – 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.

That’s why Father Jean-Marie Moreau, the Pilgrimage Chaplain, asks 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?

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.

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!

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 me for ideas.

Memorandum

TO: Family registrants, Pilgrimage 2015

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, 17 September, and in order to guarantee retrieval of your vehicle after the final Mass Sunday, 20 September.

Even if you & your family 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.

Please also visit the online pilgrims’ forum to interact with fellow pilgrims, including to help those needing a ride 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!
