Pilgrim-organizers volunteer to take on many responsibilities & roles.

pilgrimages in the united states

Some provide spiritual guidance or practical direction, others moral or material support, many simply pray. All of them make sacrifices to realize the pilgrimage year after year. Each is as integral & necessary a part of the pilgrimage as those pilgrims who follow their banners along the winding paths of the pilgrimage. And often there seem never to be enough heads & hands to accomplish the work.

The several divisions of the pilgrimage organization are shown in this schematic.

  • They include: the Sacred Chaplaincy, the Brigades, the Modified Pilgrimage, sacred Liturgical Music (choirs & direction), Sunday’s Events, the Company of St. René Goupîl, Recruitment, Development & Communication, the Corps of St. Eustace Ahatsistari – altar servers, Registration & Check-In, Special Projects, etc.

And they need generous help.

In your charity, would you donate your time, talent or treasure to help realize the pilgrimage? (We call it “signing-up”, or “declaring your intention” – whether at the moment that means ‘yes, no, or maybe’.)
