Saturday August 15, 2015 is the Feast of the Assumption in the Roman Catholic Calendar. While the prayer during the pilgrimage will reflect this theme, the pilgrimage is open to people of all faith traditions. If St. Gertrude’s is contacted by August 7, 2014 arrangements can be made to get back to Forest City. Without prearrangement, pilgrims are responsible for getting home once at Cold Spring.

 

The Registration fee is $10. Early bird registrants will receive a Pedal Pilgrimage Tee shirt. Pilgrims and their families are welcome to an optional $7.00 pizza dinner in Cold Spring before returning to Forest City.

 

The length of the pilgrimage is just less than 20 miles.
