Sangre de Cristo

The Sangre de Cristo Health Care Project embraces Service as its primary reason for being, and holds as its mission to: identify in solidarity with communities of limited resources, promote the human dignity of each person, and create an integrated health care system.

Mission church of San Jose

San Jose Nacahuil is a 100% Mayan Village in Guatemala. This unique and special community is situated in a mountainous area one hour northeast of the capital Guatemala City.  Characteristic of other Mayan villages, eighty percent of the San Jose community lives below the poverty line and residents do not have access to adequate local health care or clean water.  The church provides the only “social services” to the community.

Our Lady of the Rosary

Grace Centre, in collaboration with the local church of San Pedro, has initiated a Clean Water Project for San Pedro because of lack of sanitary drinking water. Unpurified, the water in San Pedro is contaminated with E. Coli and other bacteria that cause severe illness in children and in the worst cases chronic malnutrition.  The water treatment plant will provide a viable source of clean water for the community, and help eliminate the devastating effects of impure water in bodies of young children and families of the area.  This project empowers the local church of San Pedro, NUESTRA SENORA DEL ROSARIO, to bring hope and healing to the poorest of the poor in this destitute area of Guatemala City, northeast of the city center.
