Students Experience Italy in Spring of 2018

Forty-three members of the JPII community traveled to Rome for a pilgrimage during the 2018 spring break. Pilgrims prayed before the bones of St. Peter, attended an audience with Pope Francis, worshiped in centuries old churches and basilicas, St. Peter’s Basilica included, and toured the catacombs where thousands of early Christians were buried. Parents of students who wanted to participate but didn’t have the immediate funds were assisted by BKHQ for short term loans they can easily pay off with their paychecks.
