Sunday options 2014

(Plans are subject to change.)

Sunday, September 21 Register now for Sunday only!

As at the model Pentecost Pilgrimage to Chartres in France, many pilgrims join on the last day - this year, Sunday - to walk the last leg of the spiritual journey with the column of pilgrims on the road since Friday.

Note well!

Because of the NEW days & ways once again this year (2014), PILGRIMS DO not PASS THROUGH OR RENDEZVOUS AT THE NATIONAL SHRINE OF BLESSED KATERI IN FONDA.

There are instead two new options to participate:

  • OPTION A. - Designed for those who wish to join the main column at lunchtime and walk the last several miles to the destination Shrine at Auriesville. Option A is for everybody except parents pushing strollers or seniors 'pushing 80'!

    In other words, NO strollers are permitted with pilgrims who choose Option-A.

  • OPTION B.- Ideal for the 'STROLLER BRIGADE!' and for seniors who are able to walk just the last few miles with the column, along the Canalway bike path.

    Option B is for parents pushing strollers, the still-ambulatory-elderly, and other pilgrims not ready to make the "Modified Pilgrimage" all three days.

If you choose Option A, follow these instructions:

Then print out the following instructions and directions:

  1. Arrive by 10:30 A.M. Sunday morning at the Auriesville Shrine Visitor Center and cafeteria parking lot.

  2. There, the Field Marshal of Sunday's events will greet and direct you to shuttle to the rendezvous point, in order to meet the column on the road, at lunchtime. Click here for driving directions.

    LAST SHUTTLE DEPARTS AT 11:00 A.M.

  3. After lunch you walk the last 7 miles to the destination shrine with the main column.

    When you register, you may choose the option to volunteer to shuttle pilgrims to the 'Option-A lunchtime rendezvous'

    An e-mail is sent directly to the Field Marshall when you choose that option. You may also communicate directly with him after registering, if you have questions.

    After delivering pilgrims to the rendezvous point, pilgrim drivers return to the Auriesville Shrine to pray or venerate the holy sites.

If you choose Option B, follow these instructions:

Then print out the following instructions and directions:

  1. Arrive by 12-noon at Auriesville Shrine Visitor Center and cafeteria parking lot.
  2. There, the Field Marshal of Sunday's events will greet and direct you to walk, in brigades, to the rendezvous point, in order to meet the column on the Canalway bike path just south of Ft. Hunter. Click here to preview the walking directions.

    LAST BRIGADE DEPARTS AT 12:30 P.M. (No pilgrim may walk unattached to a brigade.)

  3. Then you walk back to the destination Shrine along Canalway trail path to pray the crowning Mass at 3:15 P.M.

    Register no later than September 18 if you wish to volunteer to lead pilgrims in your group on foot to the 'Option-B rendezvous'.

      Please be considerate of other pilgrims and the responsibilities of organizers to prepare for the new events Sunday. Please register today for Sunday!

      Questions? E-mail the Field Marshall.
