Dear Friends of the Mission of Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus,
The end of the school year was a great asset for our mission. The highlight was the baptism of some of the school children. What joy to see our little students following Our Lord and taking the step of asking for baptism! This shows the importance of our school, which aims not only to transmit academic knowledge but above all to share the most beautiful treasure contained in our mission: the presence of Jesus in the Eucharist.
In this month of July, encouraged by our dear Saint Thérèse, we are called to deepen our devotion to the Precious Blood. May this devotion awaken in us our missionary zeal for the salvation of souls.
SITIO - I am thirsty. Let us thirst for souls like Saint Thérèse. Let us pray to her that she might be a missionary in her school! The harvest is abundant.
This September we will incur many expenses. There is a kindergarten classroom to renovate with sanitary facilities, revisions required for the school’s 6 buses, and essential maintenance fees.
Unfortunately, not all of these expenses can be covered with school fees. We are counting on you to help us prepare for the new school year.
