Company of St. René Goupîl – sign-up

CSRG Membership Application 2018

Use another form to volunteer with the altar servers.

Use a different form to volunteer with any other division of the organization.

There are only three possible options.
Choose option 1. even if you expect not to travel to Auriesville, but can help plan in advance.
Fellow-organizers need your help to plan for pilgrims in advance this season - or next year.

Submitting this form takes about three minutes.

  • This page asks for your name & contact information.
  • The next page asks whether you are applying for the first time, re-applying, or not returning.
  • The last page asks you to invite another sinner to make pilgrimage for his own penance and the love of God.

Before you start, have ready your own contact information.

Be ready also to enter the name and at least the e-mail address of a potential replacement or a prospective pilgrim-recruit.

(The person you identify need only be a prospect. Fellow organizers are not looking for your guarantee, just your cooperation.)

Having trouble with the form? E-mail the webmaster. Or phone 610/435-2634.

* Explanation

1. The Company of St. René Goupîl is an apostolate of pilgrims founded to provide material assistance to fellow-pilgrims of the annual Pilgrimage for Restoration to the Shrine of Our Lady of Martyrs, Auriesville NY. Members of the Company exercise charity in imitation of St. René Goupîl, offering their services voluntarily as works of mercy, both spiritual and corporal, ad majorem Dei gloriam.

2. The Company is composed of lay men and women who have reached the age of 16 and whose application has been accepted. Work for the Pilgrimage for Restoration is conducted under the direction of Company and other Pilgrimage organizers. Membership endures for one year, and must be renewed annually by application by May 1.

3. New or first-time applicants are also expected to apply and register by May 1.

4. Volunteers who apply & register before May 1 are asked to give a donation of $40 in lieu of the registration fee. A CSRG application and/or registration received after July 1 must be accompanied by the regular registration fee. ($90 until July 1; $110 after July 1; $130 after August 1; $150 after September 1.)

5. As is the long-standing custom in imitation of the zeal of St. René to save souls, all CSRGers are expected each year to invite at least one prospective pilgrim to join the Company.

Alternately, every Company member expecting not to return to service in the field come September is asked to identify his/her prospective (potential) replacement.

6. Until a volunteer signs up with the Company, other organizers are asked not to prepare with him/her for pilgrimage.

7. All volunteers accepted into the Company are to keep a copy of the letter of St. Isaac Jogues to his Jesuit superior explaining the life and martyrdom of St. René. Since members of the Company are to seek to live the spirit of their Blessed Patron, each is expected to study the letter of St. Isaac.
