As some of you may know I am heading on a pilgrimage to Poland and Rome over Holy Week which luckily for me is also my Spring Break and Birthday Week! I will be following the footsteps of Saint Pope John Paul II throughout his birthplace of Poland and then to his later years in Rome! Some of the many things I get to experience are Easter mass at the Vatican and traveling alongside two friends from Mizzou but also the well known missionary and public figure Sarah Swafford. Sarah, in the picture with me, and I met at a Catholic conference in January 2018 where I got the chance to talk with her about her ministry and her family while graciously receiving a personal invitation to travel alongside her, her husband and four children on this pilgrimage! That Catholic conference I talked about earlier, profoundly changed my life and opened my eyes and my heart to a possible career in missionary work! My heart would be forever filled if you could contribute to this trip in any way! I would also like to offer any prayer intentions or relics you would like me to carry with me or get blessed would be my pleasure to do! If you would like to see the whole itinerary check out the link added below! Also let me know if you would like me to email me my formal funraising letter and itinerary! Thank you so much for all your love and support! Please know I am praying for each and everyone of you always! I love you all dearly!
Sending all my love and prayers always,
Ava Harper Hanlon
