COSTA RICA, Carlos Alfaro •
The mission of offering madrugadores, as an option of authentic manly religiosity, to more dioceses and parishes in Costa Rica continues. On Friday, June 10, we visited another diocese in Perez Zeledon, and on Monday, June 13, we participated in the first early morning of a community in the diocese of Ciudad Quesada. —
We visited Perez Zeledon to take the madrugadores message to the Diocese of San Isidro. We were received by Bishop Juan Miguel Castro Rojas, who was very positive to review and start soon the communities of madrugadores. In addition, the couple David Alvarado and Lucia Blanco, from the Schoenstatt Family Branch, who participated with the priestly Pilgrim MTA, were also present. It was a very productive visit. We feel happy and we know that our beloved Blessed Mother is and will be with us.
The new community in San Carlos
We participated in the first early morning of the new and numerous community of Madrugadores of the parish of San Roque, in San Carlos, diocese of Ciudad Quesada (photo above). Little by little the Madrugadores reach the most remote and large communities in the country.
The Community of Tepeyac, in Guadalupe, has a group of Madrugadores Bakers who bake bread to help their parish. These madrugadores who support their parishes are a great blessing.
The parish has a chapel that is in bad shape and the money they collect from the sale of bread will be used to repair the chapel.
They are totally identified with their parish. And it is enough to see the video to realize the joy of the gospel and of service in Christ’s church.
