Father Carlos’s recent message to the Women’s Auxiliary 

"my dear Ladies, I can't thank you and the good people of St Mary of the Lakes parish enough for what we have been able to do here for the poorest of poor. Their smiles speak volumes of your generosity and love 5,000 miles away. Together we will help our brothers and sisters climb that difficult mountain of misery that many of them are living. May God bless America and the good people of St Mary of the Lakes. Please continue to pray for us. I look forward to breaking bread with you soon. I'd like to celebrate what we've done when I get back. I have a lot of photos to show you and a video. Wifi is spotty. God bless you.”
