Youngsters from a West Palm Beach parish are working to raise money for a trip to Rome and a performance in front of Pope Francis.

The St. Ann Parish Youth Choir sang Sunday at St. John Fisher Church in West Palm Beach.

The performance was just one of many by the choir as they try to raise money for the trip.

“I think that being able to be in the same room and singing for him will be something that I'll always remember,” said choir member Arisabelle Pierre-Paul.

The 10-day pilgrimage costs approximately $4,300 per child.

Trip organizers say so far they have raised about half of the amount needed to send the children signed up for the trip.
