Where do I need to go? What time should I get there?

Families are encouraged to park at the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help and then take a shuttle bus to the “Walk with the Children” starting location.  There is no place to park at the “Walk with the Children” join in point. This location is in the middle of nowhere – farm fields, farm land, and the intersection of two county roads.  Once dropped off by the shuttle bus you wait at the Walk with the Children join-in point until the pilgrims get there. Then you simply join in. The pilgrimage should reach this location at approximately 3PM at the latest.  Buses will begin to shuttle pilgrims from the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help to the “Walk with the Children” starting location at approximately 1:30pm.  The last shuttle bus will leave at promptly 2:00pm, so give yourself plenty of time, but don’t be late!
