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.
Maggy 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!!
