Casa Alexia Food ProgramFood Program

Seven years ago we opened a Food Program in our parish. We had 31 families that we visited and helped once a month with a bag of five basic foods: two pounds of rice, dried beans, cooking oil, sugar and detergent. Thanks to our most generous donors, we were able to aid 64 families and  added five more basic foods: oatmeal, noodles, and cans of fish, milk and vegetables.

In May of 2015  we started a mid-month dispensary for 27 new families and a repeat for 3 of the neediest families from the other group. These families receive one kilo of rice, dried beans, sugar and soap, plus one quart of cooking oil.

Golden Agers Group

Every Friday morning a group of thirty or more senior citizens come to Sister Josefina Lopez’s “Golden Agers” meeting.  Sister Josefina began this group at the parish of Jesus the Worker in Juarez, Mexico about five years ago.  The group shares and reflects on the Word of God.  They listen to lectures on various topics such as:  health, economics and current events; participate in a manual arts class and exercise with dance and Tai Chi.   This group has also made a commitment to recycle, compost, and to conserve water as their way of appreciating and caring for the earth.

These seniors enjoy this time of socialization and return home stronger and happier in all aspects of their being.
