General Public Announcements for the World Wide Web - Trailblazers, 2010-2011

Diamond Belle River Tour 2009 has been cancelled - for this year only. We'll see you on the boat in 2011!
  • Our annual river tour fund raiser has been cancelled, due to come conflicts
  • We will be back on the waves in the summer of 2011, and we hope you will sponsor our youth - who greatly need your financial generosity, big or small...
Itinerary for Pilgrimage - Madrid, 2011
  • Click here to see our entire plan from August 9 to August 23, 2011
  • Check it out, and see what shape World Youth Day 2011 is beginning to take
  • Exact prices will be publicized in September 2010; Trailblazers needs to wait for the airlines to establish prices on tickets - the bulk of the charge for the trip - which they cannot do until 11 months before the flight.
  • You need a PASSPORT to travel to and from Spain (and all Europe). You can find all you need to know on this US Government web site about applying for or renewing passports.
  • If you dont' have a passport, remember it can take several weeks - that's right, even a few months! So apply now. The best way to do so is to go to your most conveniently located post office, where they have forms for passport applications.
  • Have you heard about the PASSPORT CARD? As big as a credit card, serves as a passport for American travel with Canada and Mexico

  • Documents which you must fill out and return in writing to Trailblazers
  • Packing list
  • Other practical news will be occasionally updated
Announcement: Travel Insurance !
  • Trailblazers does not provide travel insurance . Some persons have coverage for their own reasons, and charging for insurance would mean higher costs even for those already covered.
  • You can call any Travel Agent, such as our old friends at Corporate Travel at 313-565-8888, to obtain very good, very affordable coverage for yourself or your group on this or any trip.
  • Some insurance plans may include coverage. Or other services may provide it; for example, some Discover customers may earn automatic flight insurance when they use their card to purchase travel services. To see which vendors offer you which services, please contact them directly.

 Cardinal Maida the previous Ordinary of the Archdiocese of Detroit, who was our Archbishop here when we founded, publicly congratulated the 2007 Call to Holiness (CTH) conference for inviting Trailblazers speak to the youth. For those out of state: he is the Archbishop of the Catholic Archdiocese of Detroit.

The CTH conference was in two locations (Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, Wyandotte, and St. Rene Goupil, Sterling Heights, MI), and so was Trailblazers!

Trailblazers is always at the service of the Church, and is grateful for this kind encouragement extended by our local Archbishop!
