EVENT DATE Mar 31, 2015
Hello Family and Friends,
This is truly a time when I can say "It takes a village to raise a child"
Danielle will start her journey by being part of the Easter Triduum & by attending an International Mass on Easter Sunday. They will then visit Cachot and other areas of interest, The Waters at the Grotto and the baths, a Rosary Procession and Blessing of the Sick, Bartres, Biarrits, and St. Jean de Luz. They will then make their way to Carcassone, Limoges, Oradour Sur Glane, and Nevers. Next they'll go to Paris, Giverny, Versailles, Normandy, and Lisieux. Here is why Danielle would like to go on the Pilgrimage:
I am currently a 16 year old (soon to be 17) junior attending Xavier College Preparatory. Growing older I think it is important that I continue to develop and strengthen my Catholic faith. From this trip I will grow closer to God, learn more about him, and be able to experience some of the most beautiful churches, visit the miraculous healing waters, and visit the convent where St. Bernadette is incorruptible. This trip is also very important to me because I will be learning about the culture and arts in Europe. I myself am a musician and think it would be wonderful to experience the music up close and personal. I have always been fascinated with all the beautiful buildings, paintings/stain glass, language, and history of Europe. Please consider making a donation to help me meet my goal. Thank you very much!
