I want to share with you an exciting opportunity I have to increase my faith, love, and talents while serving those in need.
This March, I have the opportunity to spend two weeks (March 18-April 1) in Guadalajara, Mexico doing mission work with the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter. While staying in the city of Guadalajara at the fraternity’s parish, Our Lady of the Pillar, our main apostolate will be to spread the love of Jesus Christ by being a living example of our Catholic faith. Upon beginning each day with Holy Mass, we will then undertake door-to-door evangelization and different tasks to help the needs of their Church. Also, one of our main goals is to spread our love and support of the Latin Mass, the Extraordinary form of the Mass. Additionally, on the last day of this mission trip, myself and my fellow missionaries will have the opportunity to visit and tour the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City, where the original tilma of Saint Juan Diego resides.

God continuously calls each and everyone of us closer to him. Answering this call, constantly requires us to live a life of holiness. The purpose for which God created us is: to know, love, and serve God in this world, and to be happy with Him in the next, Eternity. Further, by loving others, we in turn love God. I wish to give the love of God, to the people that I encounter in Guadalajara. Each and everyone of us is meant to love and to be loved. Christ is the prime example of love, He died on the cross to redeem us, completely and totally out of love for mankind. Through this mission trip, I hope to grow closer to Jesus Christ as I serve those longing for love.
“Go throughout the whole world and preach the gospel” (Mark 16:15). Christ has called us all to be evangelists. Each person has a unique and critical role to play in God’s plan. I write you today to join me on my mission trip, as a mission partner. As a mission partner I most importantly ask you for your prayers. In fulfillment of my mission goal, I kindly ask for your financial support. It is expected of me that I raise $750 toward my mission trip. Any level of a thoughtful gift on your part is greatly appreciated.
A blessed Lent!
