John Paul is gonna get his van!

John Paul's Gofundme Campaign
Dear family and friends,

I told you about the Gofundme campaign that my parents put together to get a new wheelchair van for my little brother John Paul. They started the campaign on December 8th, the feast of the Immaculate Conception, and it looks like they will be able to purchase the van this Thursday! They need $28,410, and donations are just over $28,000 now. (the Gofundme page shows less, but it’s not counting a donation of $10,000 from the Archdiocese of Saint Louis, as well as a few more donations by check)

they took John Paul for a test drive in the van, and he approved!
I wanted to really thank all of you who have been able to help, and encourage anyone who would still like to make a last-minute donation. (

We had kind of given up taking John Paul anywhere that we couldn’t push him to in his wheelchair, but this van will make transporting him so much easier. John Paul loves moving--I discovered this when I took him ice skating the first time. He loves car rides too, and I can't wait to see him take a ride in his new van.

Thank you once again, and please be assured of my prayers for you!
Father Kevin
