A dozen youth from Dixon will travel to Philadelphia Friday to see and hear Pope Francis and participate in the World Congress for the Family. Joining the youth will be Jesus Hernandez, a seminarian who is at St. Peter’s Catholic Church for a year of Pastoral Training.
“We have fundraised all summer and our teens are very excited to participate and be present and this one in a lifetime event,” said Sahmed Aceves, who is Director of the St. Peter’s Youth Program.
