St. Catherine’s parish supports two orphanages in Mexico: Casa Amparo in Reynosa, Mexico and Casa Hogar in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. Casa Amparo is run by the sisters of Our Lady of Charity of the Refuge and Casa Hogar is run by the Sisters of Mercy.
Each year St. Catherine’s collects items for back to school supplies and at Christmas, various medicines and personal care items. Both have a sponsorship program at a cost of $300 a year to sponsor a child and remember them on their birthday and Christmas.
Several delegations have traveled to Mexico to open their hearts and embrace those girls who are without mothers and fathers. For more information on how you can help contact Mary Hunt at 269-978-2338.
