Santa Maria opens school year with Mass at the Basilica of Our Lady of Sorrows

August 25, 2017. The Basilica of Our Lady of Sorrows. Soriano, Mexico.

The students, faculty, staff, and religious of Santa Maria commenced the 2017-18 school year with Mass in the basilica of Soriano. Giving thanks to God for his grace and to our Mother for her maternal protection, all Santa Maria students received the scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. The primary school, the middle school, and the high school of Santa Maria all opened their doors for the new year this August, grateful to our Lord for his many blessings.

New computer lab

Elmer and Penélope Amaya from Austin, Texas and friends raised funds to renovate our high school computer lab.  Our students study on-line and were in need of new computers.  Now we have 30 brand new computers thanks to the generosity of those who donated.  Thank you! 

Confirmation and Holy Communion

June 18, 2017. Fifty-three children of Santa Maria del Mexicano received the sacraments of Confirmation and Holy Communion in the primary school of Santa Maria. Bishop Faustino Armendáriz Jiménez, the bishop of the Diocese of Queretaro, presided and Father Jeremy Davis, the assistant director of Santa Maria, concelebrated the Mass. The children of Santa Maria receive their catechesis in house and are instructed by the religious of the Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity. It was a joyful occasion for all! Many parents and godparents rejoiced with the mission as more children were sent off to preach and live the Gospel, driven by the Holy Spirit and the Eucharist! Thanks be to God!
