DR Scholarships - 89!
"Thank You!" ¬°Gracias!
Amazing! Fabulous! Awesome! Thank you Christ Church for your generosity in supporting the Dominican Mission Scholarship program. On Tuesday, we sent $31,150 for 89 scholarships to the school in El Pedregal, our mission field in the Dominican Republic. This is 19 more than the 70 we have donated for the past three years. There were 127 children enrolled in 2018. 

When we sent this good news to Padre Canela, the priest in charge of the church and school, he sent this message for you:
" We give glory to God for the generosity that you have offered to our school, and we ask the same God to continue to bless the life of each of you and your families and the congregation of Christ Church." 

When he heard about the number of scholarships, Bishop Mois√©s Quezada responded:  "We thank you for your great love for our diocese and for this donation to support the scholarships at this school.  Many blessing to you!"

Coming in next week's bulletin: links to a detailed report and a comprehensive photograph album about the 2018 mission trip. For more information on our mission program in the Episcopal Diocese of the Dominican Republic, click here.
