Ever do a Church-A-Thon? We didn't think so...Join us on December 6th as we embark on a spiritual journey through Rome!
How it Works
Meet Brother Javier. Br. Javier is studying here in Rome and wants to raise support for his scholarship….he wants to do something that is Spiritual (Praying in beautfiul Churches) Priestly (Interceding for others) Challenging (Walking all day) and Fun (sharing the day with many brothers) so he decides to do a Churchathon! hello we are testing this
(Please click side arrows to scroll)
Step 1: Preparation
Preparation: Brother Javier puts his testimony on the website and gets ready for the Church-A-Thon with prayer and sacrifice.
Step 2: Reaching Out
Reaching Out: Brother Javier reaches out to all of his friends asking them to support him and his vocation through this event. Br. Javier’s friends also reach out to him with the prayer intentions they have.
Step 3: The Big Day!
The Big Day: Br. Javier and all the Church-A-Thon brothers wake up early to make it to St. Peter’s Basilica for mass. After mass they pray the Creed at the tomb of St. Peter and the Church-A-Thon begins! They head out on foot visiting 24 more Churches thanking God for their vocation and interceding for others. 10 hours later they arrive home exhausted, yet fulfilled from a day spent with their Lord and brothers.
