Information and Preparatory Recommendations for Pilgrims

The Pilgrimage will begin with Mass at 5:30 a.m on Friday morning at St. Isidore Church.

Food and Drink

Breakfast burritos, Lunch, Dinner and snacks are provided on the day of the Pilgrimage.  (PLEASE NOTE: Each of the meals will have gluten free options.)

Water, Gatorade, and a variety of snacks (granola bars, fruit, etc.) will be provided throughout the Pilgrimage – NO NEED TO CARRY YOUR OWN WATER

HYDRATE before and during the Pilgrimage – Colorado is a dry climate, with low humidity.  You may not notice that you are losing fluids, but you are – so it is very important to drink plenty of replenishing liquids! 

Sun and Altitude

Colorado’s elevation and relatively thin air mean that the sun’s rays are very powerful here.  Shading hats are recommended, and don’t forget the sunscreen!  (The church supplies a variety of sunscreen products for those who may need them.)

If you discover that you are experiencing headaches, dizziness, or nausea, you may be feeling the effects of the higher elevation.  Please be sure to visit a support vehicle for assistance right away if you notice any of these symptoms.

HYDRATE before and during the Pilgrimage

Clothing

Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and bring several pairs of good socks.

Blister prevention products – foot powder, moleskin, blister bandaids, etc. – may be helpful, as the majority of the Pilgrimage route is on pavement.  (The church supplies a variety of foot prep/blister prevention items for those who may need them.)

Don't try to break in new or trendy shoes during the Pilgrimage - they will break you in!

You may want to bring rain gear, as afternoon showers are not uncommon in Colorado.

Leggings or bike shorts under your clothing are highly recommended!  (Anti-chafing products may also be helpful!)

Support Vehicles

A number of vehicles (primarily 15-passenger vans) will be accompanying the Pilgrimage and will be available for those periodically in need of rest, cooling down, catching up, etc.  These vehicles will be identified by their “Mother Cabrini Pilgrimage” signs.

Support vehicles have radios which broadcast the Pilgrimage conferences, prayers, songs, etc., so don’t be hesitant to take advantage of them if you are in need – you will still be able to fully participate in Pilgrimage activities.

Support vehicles are stocked with first aid kits (acetaminophen, ibuprofen, aspirin, bandages, etc.) and water, and have contact numbers for all Pilgrimage support personnel.

Other Items of Note

Restroom facilities (port-o-potties) will be available throughout the pilgrimage.

Pilgrimage booklets will be provided, containing prayers, hymns, devotions, meditations, etc.

Pilgrims are to wear comfortable and modest clothing, according to Catholic standards.  (Ladies in skirts that cover the knee and men in pants.)

Day pilgrims are welcome to join the pilgrimage at any point along the route. 

Minors (under age 18) must be accompanied by a parent or designated chaperone, 21 or older.  

 

*** SPECIAL NOTE FOR PARENTS OF SMALL CHILDREN ***

The Pilgrimage route takes us through populated areas, some with a high volume of traffic.  Please keep your children with you at all times, and take special care to keep them from the edge of traffic flow.
