Stepping Out Sites & Routes

*** PLEASE NOTE, WE HAVE COMBINED STEPPING OUT SITES AND ADDED A NEW STEPPING OUT SITE.  BELOW IS A LIST OF THE NEWLY COMBINED SITES, THEIR ROUTES, APPROXIMATE WALKING TIME AND THEIR CONTACT INFORMATION***

Please choose a Stepping Out Site.  You may contact the site’s contact person for more information.

Each Stepping Out Site will provide all walkers with the route/map they will be taking.  Community Police escorts will be at sites that are in need of an escort.  The police will stop the traffic so all walkers may cross safely.   Please provide the Police Escort with a route/map.

Step out begins at approximately 8:30am. Please check your site for their stepping out times. There will be a short blessing at each site. Good Friday walkers will  be coming from all directions, stepping out from their site and  will converge at the State House for a rally.

Walkers in  need of a bus back to their Stepping Out Site, buses will be available free of charge.
