“Christ entrusted man to the Church; he entrusted man to her as the way of her mission and ministry. Of all the many paths that man walks, the family is the first and most important. It is a common path to all, yet one which is particular, unique and unrepeatable just like every individual is unrepeatable”
Pope John Paul II
(Letter to Families), 2

At 7pm that evening, the group will attend a speaking event in the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas, featuring Christopher West and Mike Mangione. On the morning of April 5th, after a tour and rosary at St. Peter’s Cathedral in Kansas City, the group will journey home.
