San Carlos Community Helps the Mission

San Carlos, Mexico – As the winter community members of beautiful San Carlos prepared to return to the United States and Canada for the summer, they generously purchased 175 kilos (about 385 lbs) of meat for the Meson de Jésus, the Mission’s adult dining room.

San Carlos CommunityMaggy Murray, Carol Cisneros, Sharon Ahern and Anna Klein are the engines for this initiative and are long-time friends of the CFO. Maggy also holds a “fiesta” each year at her home for the Meson staff who excitedly look forward to the annual event.

Ironically, the Mission was started when the bishop of Obregon asked the Franciscan Province of Santa Barbara to come and minister to the spiritual needs of the North Americans wintering in San Carlos. The Franciscans agreed with the understanding that they could also serve the poor in Guaymas.

San Carlos is “giving back” by providing needed protein to God’s struggling people who depend on the Meson de Jésus for their daily bread.  The Mission also provides employment for the dedicated people who work there.

Gracias, amigos of San Carlos and have a blessed summer!!

    Hi, there’s a father that used to be at the colegio navarrete middle school in breaks. He used to be a nice father and a wonderful old man. I think he must passed away already unfortunately. Must be between 91-94 more or less. I woudl like to remember his name. Myther says his name is Martin, but I think that’s another nice man. Thank you.

      Hi, Marcela, if you can tell me the years that you are referring to, I can do some research. If it was Fr. Marty (Martin) he has passed. There is now a street named after him in Guaymas.
