Diocesan youth in grades 6-12 are invited to join a bus trip to Washington, DC for March for Our Lives on March 23-25, 2018.
Please note that, due to space constraints, the trip is limited to the first 40 youth who register. Because this is a youth movement, we want to fill our diocesan bus with young people to represent us in Washington. To this end, we will be limiting the number of adult chaperones on this trip to the amount necessary to maintain appropriate adult ratios. If you are an adult who wishes to travel as a chaperone, please contact Victoria Hoppes (firstname.lastname@example.org) and the Rev. Lee Curtis (email@example.com) for more information and to sign up.
YOUTH Registration is available here: https://goo.gl/forms/wqRpx4ch5xXshdr12 The registration form must be completed and submitted in order to reserve a spot on the bus.

Cost: Thanks to the generosity of Christ Church Cathedral and the Diocese of Indianapolis, this trip is free to all diocesan youth. However, we will collect a free will offering to help cover transportation expenses. We invite participants and parishes to help support this trip as they are able to do so. Donations may be sent directly to Christ Church Cathedral. Note that the average cost per person is estimated to be about $123.00.
Participants are asked to bring money to cover meals during our travel days and to help with Metro (public transportation) fares for travel while we are in Washington. We will provide some snacks for the bus ride and some breakfast food.
