Pilgrimage to Kolkata, India
Organized by: Ashley Haas
EVENT DATE Oct 07, 2016
Family, Friends & People that just have good hearts -
Inspired by Pope Francis's visit to the United States; 11,000 Catholics in the D.C. area have pledged to pray, serve and act in the faith in an effort called #walkwithfrancis. While I have focused on serving as much as I can in the D.C. area, I have been given an opportunity to show the Christian love abroad in Kolkata (formally Calcutta), India this year!
I will be a part of a small group that goes to the Blessed Mother Teresa’s Tomb and volunteers with the Missionaries of Charity (Mother Teresa’s Sisters) in Kolkata; working with the dying, orphans, the disabled and possibly going in to the leper colony.
I am blessed to have this opportunity to serve, but I need help in raising the funds to apply for a visa, vaccinations, travel, and lodging. That's where you come in, friends and family! Every droplet of rain can make a huge impact in filling the bucket with water. If you want to know more about the trip, please feel free to reach out, I'm happy to tell you more and I'm happy to have your support.
