Father Terry Anderson, Pastor of Holy Trinity Catholic School in Huron, and Father Mark Lichter, Pastor of Sacred Heart Catholic Parish in Yankton are biking across the state of South Dakota from south to north to raise funds for their schools and religious education programs. The journey will begin on the Nebraska border at Yankton, South Dakota on April 25, 2013, and will continue for 270 miles to the North Dakota border on May 3. Father Paul Josten, Pastor at St. Agatha Church in Howard, South Dakota, will be the "driver", following along just in case someone needs help along the way, and to shuttle their supplies for the journey. They will be staying with friends & family along the proposed route to rest up for the next day's bike ride.
Students from both Holy Trinity Catholic School and Sacred Heart Catholic School will be collecting pledges for each mile that Father Terry and Father Mark complete on their journey. We will be tracking their progress to see who raises the most money for their school! Students at both schools will be following the journey across South Dakota via Skype video calls to Father Terry & Father Mark. Monies raised for Holy Trinity Catholic School will be used to support Catholic education at the school, and monies raised for Sacred Heart Catholic School will be used to support both their school and religious education programs.
