If you are in college and would like to fundraise towards any of the trips, we have different things you can to help fundraise towards these trips. Before you decide what you would like to do, you have to email or text Fr. Matt Norwood and let him know which trip you’re considering and which of these options you would like to choose. You cannot sign up past October 1st and you have to have finished most or all of the requirements before the trip to get the financial credit.

  1. $500 Stipend – Joining Adult Core: for every 10 life nights from 4:50 – 8 PM, you will get $500 after every 10 Life Nights for helping. So at 20 Life Nights you will get $1,000 (total). Every Life Night after that is an additional $50 towards your trip.
