PAINTING

They like their easter egg blue! I talked with Fr. Kevin and they are so excited to bring the children back to school--and this time ACTUALLY have a school. Still some final stage equipment and furniture that has been ordered...

WELCOME KIDS!

16 OCTOBER, 2021

Because of your incredible generosity and Vincentian spirit, we raised a total of:

$176,000.00 USD

Amazing! We built not one, but THREE schools at our 3 parishes who were most in need. The recent GIVE5 drive completed that project and left us with $55,000.00 to continue our charity to the poor in future projects.  More info on this next month...

May God bless and reward all you who participated in this effort! God is good!

Fr. Kevin (pastor) and kids at our new school!
