A simple idea we might learn from. Families brought their 'baby Jesus' from the family crib and placed it before the altar at Christmas Mass. The statue was blessed and then carried home by the children.
The Kitchens (Comedores) remain vital for the parish. "Each year we receive new children, suffering from malnutrition into our kitchens. Thankfully,as time moves on, the situation with some families improve and there is no longer a need for their children to continue coming to our kitchens. Sadly,because of the ongoing poverty, there are always new children to take their place".
