MEXICO, Gabriela de la Garza •
We had already shared with you that little by little the long-cherished dream of having a school with Schoenstatt pedagogy in Monterrey, Mexico, was becoming a reality. Well, during this year dedicated to St. Joseph and still with some damage from covid19, it will open its doors! —
The Blessed Mother takes perfect care
It is impressive how sometimes it seemed to us that on the way there were obstacles and obstacles, between seeking financing, permits, bureaucratic procedures, pandemic, etc., but we have realized that everything is part of the training and education that our Mother gives her children when she entrusts them with a task. She takes perfect care of her projects!
Taking advantage of the visit to our city of Father Fernando Baeza, Provincial Superior of the Schoenstatt Fathers Secular Institute and Father Stefano Daneri who is the Superior of the Schoenstatt Fathers in Mexico, on Wednesday, April 14, there was an emotional Mass in the central patio of the new building where many men and women will be educated who, in the words of Father Baeza “will be healthy, joyful, generous, with ideals and capable of dreaming in a new society”.
Since it is not yet possible to have celebrations with many people, only a few were present at the mass to represent the many others who have supported us with their prayers, effort and financial support over the years.
The opportunity to learn, play and grow surrounded by God’s love
The new Director of Monte Reina School, Judith González, comments:
“We are extremely happy to see this dream come true; a place where each one of our students will have the opportunity to learn, play and grow surrounded by God’s love through each one of us who will be part of the Monte Reina community”.
Enrollment for children from two years of age has begun and, God willing, they will start academic activities next August, offering, so far, pre-school education.
Mater, make our wish your school!
