Friends and Helpers of Madre Berenice (FHMB)
FHMB was started by Betty Matteson, Katie Brown and other long-time parishioners who in 2003 travelled to Ecuador as pilgrims. Over the years they continued to visit Ecuador and established their non-profit organization in 2006. Their mission is inspired by the teaching of Jesus, and the call to have a preferential love of the poor, FHMB was organized to provide help and support to the missionaries of Ecuador. Assistance is given by acquiring healthcare and educational supplies, clothing, and funds to supplement the services of the missionaries. Members witness the love of God by visiting and getting to know and serve the people personally.
Come support them at the annual Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser on Monday March 5 from 4 - 8 pm. Tickets are $15 and will be available after all the Masses starting Feb 18. For more info contact Katie Brown at 858-272-6376.
Grupo de Veinte
Grupo de Veinte (group of twenty) was started by Jim and Cece Simon, long-time parishioners. They began this journey in 2005 when they walked the Camino de Santiago in Spain and were inspired to be of service to people of South America. From there they began going on mission trips to Ecuador and Peru and in 2012 established their non-profit organization. Grupo de Veinte's mission is to support the religious communities which include the Priest, Sisters and Missionaries who provide medical needs, health and educational assistance to the people residing in the remote, high mountain regions of Peru and Ecuador, South America.
