World Youth Day Pilgrimage 2016

Hi!  My name is James Poirier, and I am currently a college student at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo.   I'm raising money for a pilgrimage to go see Pope Francis in Krakow, Poland with five other young adults from my parish, and experience the World Youth Day Conference.

World Youth Day is a weeklong event organized by the Catholic Church for young adults around the world. Several million pilgrims attend the event every year.  The highlight of every World Youth Day is a night vigil and mass with the Pope himself! I am so blessed and thankful to have the opportunity to go on this trip, and thank you for your support!

The money I'm raising will help cover food, travel, and registration costs on this trip.  My goal is to raise this amount by April 30, 2016.

Thank you and God bless!
