A work of God for the benefit and training of those most in need

The San Juan Apóstol de Arequipa school celebrated its 20th anniversary with a Thanksgiving Mass and a pleasant family party on Wednesday, November 9th and Sunday, November 13th.  The spiritual and cultural celebrations brought together some of our Sodalit brothers, teachers, administrative staff, students and their families to give thanks to God for the journey.

This solidarity educational project, run by Solidarity in March – Peru, “is a school that serves the most vulnerable people of the Villa Cerrillos youth community in Arequipa.  Its particularity is that it is a work of God for the benefit and formation of his most needy children”, says Víctor Ramos, Sodalit and promoter of the school.

The Holy Mass on Wednesday, November 9th, was presided over by Javier Len, Sodalit founder of the solidarity school.  Priests who are friends and close to the San Juan Apóstol school concelebrated. In addition to the members of the educational family, benefactors and friends who have helped and help to make the project of offering quality education in Villa Cerrillos a reality, were present.

After the Mass, the assistants went to the Multiple Use Room (MUR) to contemplate a photographic exhibition that shows the path of the school during these 20 years.  The celebrations on Wednesday concluded with the presentation of the  San Juan Apóstol College orchestra.

On Sunday, November 13th, the Family Party was held, with a competition of typical dances between the four houses of the school: San Marcos, San Lucas, San Juan and San Mateo.  Parents, alumni and school students participated in this joyful meeting and sharing space.

Víctor Ramos points out that “the greatest blessing received in these 20 years has been the progress of the project, made possible thanks to the generosity of so many people and institutions throughout these years.  We wholeheartedly thank all those who joined us in our celebrations and those who accompany us with their prayers and donations”.
