I have been offered an amazing opportunity, and I need your help to see it through.
I applied to LifeSiteNews for the position to attend a Catholic Youth Conference and Leadership Formation Program in Rome. I knew that the chances of being selected were slim, as they were doing an international search for faithful young Catholics to fill a very limited amount of spots, and they were indeed overwhelmed with the number of applications they received. I was therefore humbled when I received the news that I was selected from among the many applicants.
The journey, coinciding with the Vatican Youth Synod in October, will be a witness to faithful adherence to the unchangeable teachings of the Faith and will include a Leadership Formation Program, a pilgrimage day at Rome's holiest sites praying for the Church in crisis, a Youth Conference with Cardinal Burke focused on vocational discernment and evangelization, and All-Night Adoration praying for the Church.
LifeSiteNews will cover most of my accommodations in Rome, the conference fees, tour fees, and the meals associated with the conference. But I still need your help. The $2,300 would go towards my airfare to and from Rome, transportation within Rome, meals, and one night accommodation. I will be flying with an economy airline and staying at a convent to keep the cost as low as possible.
It would be an incredible opportunity for me to participate in this event, which is focused on just what I desire to do in life. I feel called by God to dedicate my life to the service of Christ and to lead His people to a fulfilling and joyful life with Him, and I feel that attending would not only be a beautiful witness, but would also provide me with an experience that would help form me into the leader that God is calling me to be.
I would also love to take your prayer requests with me, and would bring them all individually before our Lord in all night adoration. Please email prayer intentions to me directly at: [email redacted]
