Mexico Outreach Sunday

May 12 All day

Mexico Outreach Sunday

Padre Bayron returns to All Saints after his last visit in 2019!

Fiesta between the 9 & 11 services.

On Sunday, May 12, we celebrate the remarkable 15-year relationship between All Saints’ and the Mexican ministries of Padre Bayron Chanchavac.

For the first time in five years, Padre Bayron will be joining us to meet old friends and see what we’ve been up to since he visited last. Join us at a Fiesta between services on Doce de Mayo for food, the imminent dismantling of a pinata, and a chance to meet a remarkable church leader.

We hope to raise $6000 this year for our “Companeros en Cristo” in Mexico. Read about our long-term relationship HERE and donate HERE or by putting a little (or more) in the collection plate on May 12. As in the Butterfly Effect, our efforts here have a far greater effect in Mexico.

Padre Bayron provides a necessary inclusive alternative to other religious institutions in Mexico, and has grown his faith communities with only a small stipend from his diocese. All Saints’ provides some support for developing his congregation and an yearly fundraiser, El Efecto Mariposa, has allowed Bayron to continue his work while affording health insurance for his family, maintenance on a well-used vehicle, and beginning work on a small home.
