President’s Fund — October 2021
$1,500 grant to Modern Catholic Pilgrim for the Pilgrimage with St. Martin de Porres, Patron Saint of Racial Reconciliation.
Modern Catholic Pilgrim President Will Peterson writes,
“Our organization’s mission is to deepen faith and build community across the United States through walked pilgrimage in the Catholic tradition. Without this grant, we would not have been able to host the pilgrimage, so we would not have been able to achieve our mission. The grant allowed us to bring ~170 people together to deepen their faith in Christ while connecting with others with whom they normally would not come into contact.
It will positively affect our organization in the coming years because more pilgrimages will stem from the positive faith-enriching experience Minnesotans had on this first pilgrimage.”
