Honduran Lunch to Benefit “Our Little Roses,” May 19 at St. Mary’s, Pacific Grove

IMG_5592A traditional Honduran Lunch with “baleadas” will follow the 10 o’clock service. Lunch is $10 per person or $25 per family with children five and under free. All proceeds will go towards the health, education and safety of the girls growing up at Our Little Roses in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. Our goal is to raise $5,000 to extend the protective fencing to encompass the full property thereby expanding the area for outdoor activities such as soccer.

So we can gage the amount of food needed, please let us know if you are coming by emailing Kirsten Matsumoto – or Celeste Ventura – or call the parish office at 831-373-4441.

At least one person at St. Mary’s is dreaming of a soccer match someday between the girls of Our Little Roses and the kids involved with Peace, Power and Youth through the All Saints Community in the greater Watsonville area.
