The Youth Department for the Diocese of Springfield will be sponsoring a pilgrimage to a variety of sites in England during the summer of 2014.
1. a journey, especially a long one, made to some sacred place as an act of religious devotion
The pilgrimage will be open to youth entering 9th grade in fall 2014, through students who have just graduated from high school in the Spring of 2014. Additionally, a few students who have finished their Freshman year in college will be able to go.
We anticipate the cost will be approximately $3,000 per person. The Youth Department does not want the large amount of the cost to prevent any interested youth from participating. Starting this early gives us much time to raise money to help defray the cost. Interested youth may also be able to get some financial help from their home parish.
If you are interested in being a part of this pilgrimage you need to start now! Please contact Youth Department Chair, Kathy Moore and let her know you would like to be put on the list of those who want to be a part of the pilgrimage to England. You can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can write to her snail mail address which is 924 E Union St Nokomis, IL 62075. Putting your name in now does not obligate you to go, but it does give you a chance to be one of the pilgrims who goes to England in 2014.
