There are many ongoing ways and places to serve at St. B’s! Click here to learn more. See below how several of our parishioners have been specifically called to serve the world. Join them and others in doing God's work throughout the world.
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.
In May, 2022 the Pasta Dinner fundraiser raised over $42,000. This money includes scholarships for 34 students and is assisting Carlos, RN, to complete his Masters in Nursing, Martiuxi with her college costs, and Fabian with his housing costs while attending the University of Guayaquil.
