BECKLEY -- The Saint Francis De Sales Catholic church in Beckley held a rummage sale today to fund a group of teens on their trip to World Youth Day in Poland.

11 kids and 11 chaperones will cross countries on a once in a lifetime trip to meet Pope Francis. If you remember back to June, a golfing fundraiser was held to help support the same group

Henry Bobbin, Chairman, says that “well it's absolutely a time the kids come together, the pilgrims, for our world youth day pilgrimage that we'll be making in 2016.”

The group's goal is to raise $5,000-$6,000 dollars per kid, they say they've already made a lot of money so far.
