+ Travel: Cost of transportation

+ Hospitality: Meals as needed + hotel. Hosting in the rectory, convent, or a parishioner's home is a fine alternative, as long as it includes a good internet connection plus privacy for preparation and prayer.

Stipends are donations made to Good News Ministries. The presenter will make travel reservations and purchase tickets; host is asked to make hospitality arrangements and provide a staff member or parishioner to transport the speaker to and from the airport.
