On Saturday night about twenty Calvary parishioners of all ages gathered to enjoy El Hogar’s immersive, multi-media event, “Esperanza; A Celebration of Hope.” The evening’s program not only increased our awareness of El Hogar’s mission and ministry, but also infused us with optimism as we heard the many stories from the teachers, students, and alumni of El Hogar. Despite the trying circumstances they’ve endured, the students of El Hogar are resilient and resourceful. It is clear that God is at work in that place, and we at Calvary are blessed to witness and help support their ministry. I’m delighted to announce that we were able to raise over $2,000 to support the work of El Hogar. If you’d like to give, it is not too late!

It was a festive evening, and it was such a blessing to be surrounded by good friends and gathered in the name of a great cause!
