Missionary Cooperative Appeal

Friday, August 7, 2015

 On the weekend of August 29-30, our second collection will be for a "Fe y Alegria" (Faith and Joy) School in Zacualpa, in the El Quiché region of Guatemala (if you have already used your "Mission Co-op" envelope and would like to make an additional donation, you can use a regular envelope and write your name & envelope number on it).

 

The school carries the name "Ri Nu Tinamit Kuwalsaj Rib'" in the Mayan language and the name "Mi pueblo se levanta" (My people arise) in Spanish. This school, whose staff includes a former parishioner of Fr. Wilson's from New Bedford, helps poor children (especially girls and indigenous children, both of whom are often neglected by Guatemalan public schools) to receive a good education, along with values, self-esteem and nutrition. The "Fe y Alegria" schools began in Venezuela with the Jesuits and have spread around Latin America.

 

For more information about this school, visit the "Fe y Alegria" English website here. In addition, to read about the school's work (in Spanish), please click here and read pages 61-90. Two videos are provided below (in Spanish) about Fe y Alegria's work in Guatemala.
