Past President, Rob Walsh, visited Blessed George Napier School last week to present the sixth formers going to Lourdes with a cheque from the Catenian Bursary Fund for £1395.00.
Thirty One students from Year 12 at BGN will be travelling to Lourdes during their half-term to assist with the Birmingham Diocese pilgrimage. They each applied to the Catenian Bursary Fund for assistance with the money they needed to raise to make the trip possible.
The Catenian Bursary Fund awards grants of over £100,000 each year to young Catholics aged from 16 to 24 who volunteer to help others in projects in about 50 countries and has long been a supporter of Diocesan and HCPT pilgrimages to Lourdes.
