One Step Closer to Pope Francis!

Pope Francis is in the United States!  It's an exciting time for Catholics (and all Americans) to see him in our home.  PCSBC is even more excited because we are one step closer to seeing him in his home - Rome!

In only three short months, we will be on our way to the Vatican to sing for Pope Francis' New Year's Day Mass of Peace in Rome.  We are part of the International Congress of Pueri Cantores, the official youth choir of the Catholic Church.  With all the excitement of the Holy Father's visit to the United States, we realize we will be even closer to him on New Year's Day.  We will be joined by 5,000 children from all over the world singing in the Church's language - Latin.

We still have so much to do!  Our final payment for our 46 singers is due to the travel agency one month from now.  The cost for each child is $3,500 and we have raised enough money to make the payments so far.  However, we do not have enough money to make the last payment.  NOW is the time to get the word out about our trip.  We are the only choir from Arizona invited to sing at the International Congress and one of about 20 from the United States.  It is a chance of a lifetime.

Please help support our mission to Rome!  Go to our YouCaring page and donate whatever you can! All amounts are appreciated.  Click on the link to the right to get to our YouCaring page or just search for "Pueri Cantores".  People are already starting to notice!  Check out our rehearsal today with special guests from Fox10 Phoenix!
