Diocese, agency partner for papal visit trip options

The Catholic Diocese of Jackson  has partnered with Proximo Travel to offer three options to those who wish to attend the World Meeting of Families and the papal visit set for this September in Philadelphia. The first trip, called CCMS #1, is an eight-day trip and includes airfare, accomodations, some meals and registration to the meeting. It costs $2,399.
CCMS #2 is a five-day trip including airfare and most meals. It will cost $1,199.
The third option, CCMS #3 is a 5-day bus trip. It includes hotel and some meals as well and is $999.
All three options include the opportunity to attend the Mass celebrated by Pope Francis. The eight-day trip includes  some sessions at the World Meeting of Families.
Organizers say it is important for those who wish to take a trip to register early. They have to fill entire busses to send them. Once the first bus is full, Proximo will start a reserve list for a second bus, but cannot send that bus unless all those seats sell.
Additional details about these trips are available on the website for the Diocese of Jackson. Go to www.jacksondiocese.org and look for the headline about the Papal visit trip.
