March Charity of the Month: Guatemala Global Outreach IXIM
Donations received in the March Charity of the Month envelope will go to IXIM: Spirit of Solidarity. IXIM, pronounced “ee-sheem”, is the Mayan word for corn, a staple of Guatemala and a livelihood of Nebraska.
IXIM: Spirit of Solidarity is an organization within the Catholic Archdiocese of Omaha. It began in 2003 to foster a relationship between the people of Omaha and the Mayan people of the Diocese of Huehuetenango, Guatemala, through the sharing of our humanity, faith and resources.
Your donations support their water project and eye glasses project. Donations will also go to support Sr. Patricia Nicolas Francisco Diego, a Disciple of the Good Shepherd in Guatemala, who has consecrated her life to service to the women in the Diocese of Huehuetenango. She is a wonderful young woman who, with your help, is doing the work of our Lord.
Thank You for your generosity!
