At 8:30 am pilgrims will assemble at the Martyr's Shrine Bookstore parking lot. Buses will shuttle pilgrims to our kickoff point on the Erie Canal. No vehicles can be left at kickoff site.
Bring your lunches, water bottle and hat. There is no need this year to bring your missals and chapel veils at this point. You will have a chance to get them after the actual pilgrimage and just before we enter the Coliseum for Mass.
