World Youth Day Pilgrimage 2016

Hey guys, I'm a first year student at Butler University majoring in both English Creative Writing and Spanish.

This July, I have the incredible opportunity to go on a pilgrimage to Poland for World Youth Day (WYD) 2016 (http://www.krakow2016.com/en/.) 

The late St. John Paul II started WYD "to inspire the young people of the world to meet Christ, who is eternally young, and learn from Him how to be bearers of the Gospel to other young people." Since he started it in 1985, millions of young people have gathered every few years to meet others from all over the world, celebrate Mass with the Holy Father, learn practical ways to change the culture, and become effective Catholic leaders from their home communities. This is the 14th WYD and it will be held in Krakow, Poland on July 22 through August 1.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime kind of pilgrimage that I am going on with the Archdiocese of Indianapolis. Butler University was gracious enough to provide me with a scholarship to cover the first payment. I need to raise $2000 by March 15th. All donations will go directly towards the cost of the trip and any donation will be extremely appreciated. Please consider sponsoring my trip with any amount  or by letting others know. Every penny counts.

If you have any questions, please message me and I would love to tell you more about the pilgrimage.

Thank you, and God Bless!
