Greetings!

Thank you for taking the time to listen to us. We would like to bring to your attention of the World Youth Day hosted by the Catholic church in Lisbon this year, beginning in July. We are currently still in the process of raising funds to finance this once in a lifetime opportunity.

We have been going to meetings with our fellow pilgrims once a month, and we have had the opportunity to meet each other and engage about what this journey means and how it is much more than a trip to Europe but also be an opportunity to truly understand the Universal Catholic Church through interactions with foreign culture but also with other Catholics.

We are active members in our parish already – being involved in our youth band as we are very passionate musicians, as well as being heavily involved with our Lifeteen programme – and through this experience we will no doubt deepen our faith and understand what it indeed means to be a Catholic. We are also the only young people from our parish (Our Lady Help of Christians, Lansdowne) going on the pilgrimage, thus we understand the absolute privilege we have on going on this World Youth Day. Being a Salesian parish there is probably more of a responsibility to represent the young people as our patron saint is St John Bosco. With this privilege, there is a level of responsibility we have in telling our parish – especially our youth – about the experiences of the pilgrimage when we return.

All things considered; we hereby respectfully request any form of donations in helping us in this journey. Any sort of contribution will be gratefully accepted and appreciated.

Thank you for taking the time to consider our requests and we wish you a great day further.

God bless

Noah & Elijah Bouwers
