Due to the number of people registered so far:
- Pilgrimage schedule: We anticipate that the pilgrimages could extend into the afternoon. Therefore, both pilgrimages will begin promptly at 9 AM, and will wrap up no later than 3 PM.
- Transportation between pilgrimage sites: Because the sites are in residential neighborhoods with limited parking, we will provide transportation. Participants should plan to arrive at St. Mark’s, Teaneck before 9 AM to allow time to park and board our transport vehicle in time for the 9 AM departure. Water and snack bars will be available.
- Lunch added: We will also provide a boxed lunch, and a stop for lunch and bathroom break will be added to the schedule.
After registration closes next Monday, there will be an email to all participants with any final details.
