Help us reach our goal for our service trip to Lourdes, France for the Annual Lourdes Pilgrimage with St. John’s University’s to assist the pilgrims on their journey!
This summer, from May 30-June 9, 2014, we will be serving in Lourdes, France for the Annual Lourdes Pilgrimage sponsored by St. John’s University’s Department of Campus Ministry. A group of eleven St. John’s students will serve alongside with volunteers from all over the world. We will be assisting the sick and elderly pilgrims who travel to visit the Marian shrines and the miraculous water given to St. Bernadette from the Blessed Mother 150 years ago.
We would be honored if you could contribute to help us meet our financial goals so we can participate in this Plunge and make a difference in the lives of those in need. The total cost of the experience is over $37,000 for our group, but we only need to fundraise $10,600. The amount for each student to fundraise is $800.00. We decided to join together as a group, and set an overall goal to fundraise together!
Members of our group are contacting friends and family all over the world in an effort to cover our basic expenses. Any donation, big or small, will make a difference and help us in reaching this goal. We cannot begin to thank you for making a donation and helping us get one step closer to our final goal!
