Bivouacs & food provisions
Pilgrims must make their own provisions for nine cold meals
to picnic: three each day, Friday, Saturday & Sunday.
Organizers supply bottled water throughout, and supplement
meals with hot soup & bread in the evening
and hot water & bread with jam at breakfast.
Pilgrims supply their
own powdered coffee, hot chocolate, tea bags, instant hot breakfast
cereal, as well as cups, plates, bowls, spoons et cetera at
Company of St. René Goupîl volunteers
help prepare bivouacs along the
way. Pilgrims assist one another -- especially the women &
children -- to pitch tents.
Friday and Saturday’s
privately owned sites are equipped with running water, toilets, a few
showers and wash basins, with remote electrical supply only.
Pilgrim families or/and seniors participating in the "Modified
Pilgrimage" may park RVs at each private campsite for an additional
fee paid directly to the campsite owners on location.
Pilgrims may no longer
camp at the Auriesville Shrine. Pilgrims staying
overnight in the area make reservations at local lodgings.
