End Time:

This year’s trip will be divided into two phases.

The first phase will center on the rally in Belfast. You would need to arrive in Belfast on July 1st. That means you would need to fly out of the US on June 30th. Anyone (families, youth, etc.) can attend this part of the trip. On Friday July 2nd the youth that are with us will help Precious Life prepare for the rally which will take place on Saturday July 3rd. We will leave Sunday or Monday to tour areas (monasteries, religious and historic sites) in other parts of Ireland and Northern Ireland. Plan on returning to the US on Wednesday July 7th. There are many more flights into Dublin then there are into Belfast. You may want to fly into and out of Dublin and rent a car or Fr. Terry will be taking a van from Dublin to Belfast on July 1st. There will be limited seats on the van so if you are thinking of riding with Fr. Terry, let us know ASAP. We are waiting to hear which hotel we will be staying at in Belfast.

The second phase of the trip will begin on Wednesday July 7th leaving from Dublin and is geared toward college aged youth and young adults. It is the Youth Defence Roadshow. This part is more limited to those with Pro-life activist experience. There are also limited spaces available and will need to be coordinated with Fr. Terry and the Youth Defence Leadership. Those going on the Roadshow can stay a week or two weeks. You may have to ride a bus or train on your own back to Dublin.

The cost is very dependent on the airfare and the money exchange (Euro in Ireland, and British Pound in Northern Ireland). You should account for at least $1800 US. That is everything except spending money. This is not exact, could be a little more or a little less. Once we receive details of accommodations I will let you know more accurately of the cost.You do not have to be a member of the CEC to go. Everyone is welcome.You are welcome to join us for part of the time and go on your own part of the time. We do ask that you attend the Rally in Belfast at a minimum.

Any inquiries can be sent to Fr. Terry Gensemer directly at or sending a message to him via facebook.
