Mexico Projects

Cross Catholic Outreach in Mexico

As our neighbor to the south, Mexico holds a special place in our hearts. Working through some amazing Catholic ministry partners in the country, Cross Catholic Outreach is involved in variety of poverty relief projects, most of which are focused on leading impoverished children toward a better future.

Here are some of of the specific outreaches we empower in Mexico:
Tláhuac Home for Girls

Run by the Missionaries of Christ the King and the St. Mary Guadalupe Sisters, the Tláhuac Home for Girls is a safe-haven for children who come from impoverished homes in a rough district of Mexico City. At the boarding home, the girls are provided with daily meals, attend an on-site Catholic school and are introduced to the faith. With the help of our donors, Cross Catholic provides daily meals and funds teachers’ salaries.

 
In Favor of the Child Catholic School

Cross Catholic Outreach collaborates with the school to provide daily meals and snacks to 250 poor children, who receive scholarships to attend the school. Run by Catholic lay missionaries, children receive top-notch academic preparation, medical and dental care, participate in extracurricular activities and Catholic spiritual formation.

 
Santa Maria del Mexicano

The Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity runs a Catholic boarding school and a nursing home for elderly individuals who need special care. To keep this special ministry running strong, Cross Catholic funds nutritious meals for children and elderly residents, while also supporting Santa Maria del Mexicano’s Catholic school.

 
Casa Hogar Copainala

Located in the southern Mexican state of Chiapas, Casa Hogar Copainala Home for Girls is a refuge for poor girls ages 3-12. The Salesian Sisters welcome each child with open arms, providing healthy meals, a quality education and a nurturing Catholic upbringing. Cross Catholic Outreach supporters provide daily meals and psychological counseling to the girls.

 
Casa Maria de Nazareth Home

Preteens and teens who come to live at Casa Maria de Nazareth Home for Girls typically come from poor rural communities and are often survivors of physical, emotional and sexual abuse. The Salesian Sisters help girls overcome their horrific pasts and prepare for brighter futures with a safe shelter, nutritious meals, education and psychological counseling.

 
Villa Mornese

The Salesian Sisters also run a home for poor older teens and young women that gives them a safe place to live as they pursue an education and gain vocational skills. To help these young women break free from the cycle of poverty, Cross Catholic Outreach donors provide daily meals and psychological counseling.

 

To make life better for orphans and vulnerable children, our goal is to provide quality Catholic education and job training and to support feeding programs providing adequate nutrition to children at risk for malnutrition. We are deeply grateful to all those who share our heart to help Mexico’s impoverished children, and we hope will continue to support those outreaches with your gifts and prayers!

Proceeds from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures for the ministry's Sacred Mercy Scholarship Campaign incurred through June 30, 2019, the close of our ministry's new fiscal year. In the event that more funds are raised than needed to fully fund the project, the excess funds, if any, will be used to meet the most urgent needs of the ministry.
