More pics from the Winter Service Retreat sponsored by St George Church, Pharr, Texas — again in Mexico …
Part 1 … Part 2 … Part 3 … Part 4
On Thursday, January 3rd, our group of helpful retreatants visited Casa Amparo Orphanage to deliver collected school supplies, clothes, food, and other items.
Working AND smiling!
(Do try this at home 🙂
I made them promise not to take my picture … unless I was (also) working. I believe I actually stole that bag from one of the teens just before shutter’s click. 🙂
After unloading our supplies, we listened to the Abbess relate (through Fr Antonio’s translation) the history of the Convent/Orphanage …
Then, it was time for a tour of the grounds …
The monastic garden …
… and, at every turn, Mexico’s most beloved religious and cultural image, Our Lady of Guadalupe.
