An apostolate of the annual Pilgrimage for Restoration to Our Lady's Shrine of Martyrs at Auriesville, NY

Forget registering! EVERY   CSRGer’s VERY FIRST STEP

45 days to step-off, and counting … Sounds like a lot of time. But veterans know, there is almost never enough time to prepare. Well.

Long before registering for pilgrimage, the first step is far, far easier, it doesn’t cost a cent, and it’s way more decisive.

Best of all, it’s as simple as saying “yes” or “no”.

But let your speech be yes, yes: no, no: and that which is over and above these, is of evil. Mt. v, 37

Will you declare your intention whether to help fellow-organizers jump-start preparations today, or not?

There are only three answers — three options — no matter what your circumstances, regardless whether you can make it to Auriesville, or can help only from afar.

With only 45 days to step-off, there is lots to do, and fellow organizers need to know your intention, today. What do you say?

1.   Yes, I will volunteer this season – whether in the planning phase only, or in the field, or both.
2.   No, I am already sure I cannot volunteer this season – not in planning, nor in the field.
3.   I am not yet sure whether I shall volunteer this season. I need a little time to decide.

Which is your option?

Your fellow organizers need to know. Today.

Telling us is as simple as clicking here.

There are only 45 days til step-off. (See the proverbial clock ticking away at the very bottom of the home-page on the Pilgrimage website.)

Nobody — not you, and not your fellow-organizers — can get started until you give your word, by telling them what you intend to do. Which is it?


How hard can it be to tell somebody that?

The good news, is that telling your fellow-organizers is quick, painless, and DOESN’T COST A CENT.

Declaring your intention to volunteer is not at all the same as registering for pilgrimage. You do NOT have to travel to The Adirondacks to volunteer. Volunteering begins at home. Right now. (Whether you travel to NYS later, or not.) It’s easy.

Just click here. It take about 90 seconds. No fuss. No more procrastinating. No strings attached.

What do you do on pilgrimage? Maybe you help transport pilgrims, or offer them first-aid, or distribute water, or help cook, or haul the camp supplies, or drive the ‘port-a-potties’, or plan routes, or conduct pilgrims safely, or monitor radio communications, or set-up for holy Mass, or take care of the Chaplain’s material needs.

Then just let us know whether you will help again, or not, or are not yet sure whether you can help.

(If you do other things, like – sing in one of the choirs, or help to organize your brigade, direct the Modified Pilgrimage, or serve at the Altar, etc. – then see this page instead.)

Every volunteer signs-up no matter if you are with the Company of St. René Goupîl, or serve at the Altar in the Corps of St. Eustace Ahatsistari, or walk and organize your brigade, or sing in one of the choirs on pilgrimage, or help organize Modified or Sunday’s events, etc.

Have a question? This outline can help.
