"Taking a child, He place it in their midst, and putting His arms around it, He said to them, "Whoever receives one child such as this in my name, receives me; and whoever received me, received not me but the One who sent me." Mark 9:36-37
El Hogar Orphanage Ministry is one of the oldest outreach ministries at St. Monica. The El Hogar Orphanage, located in Tijuana, Mexico, houses 30 to 35 children and teens, ranging in age from infant to college students, who have been neglected, abused, or abandoned. For over twenty years, St. Monica has provided funding for scholarships, extra curricular activities, and counseling, along with school supplies, clothes, food and basic necessities for the orphanage.
Consider giving a gift to El Hogar, perhaps as a tribute in honor of a birthday or wedding or in memory of a loved one. Be sure to select "El Hogar" when designating your gift.
