Belle's trip to Rome
Organized by: Gabriella Apodaca
Hi, Belle is going to Rome in May to celebrate the Vatican's Deacon Jubilee with her Deacon Pilar Garcia and young adult ministry group. While there she will be have the once in a lifetime opportunity to attend a mass said by Pope Francis honoring Deacons from around the world. Belle was recently honored at a dinner hosted by the Archdiocese of Santa Fe recognizing her for her faith and ministry as a young adult in the Catholic Church. This is a once in a lifetime trip that she has the privilege of going on and what make it even more significant is how proud her great-grandfather is that she will be visiting some of the places he was able to visit at the exact same age while serving in the Air Force. Unfortunately he is in the last stages of cancer and he will not be here to hear about her experiences but is so proud and happy for her and this experience. Belle is a great kid who loves to travel and has had the blessings of being able to do a lot of things while either serving her faith or participating in school activities to help her in her future career path, culinary and business. Thank you and please know how much this trip means to her and all your generosity is greatly appreciated!
