Borderland Ministries steps up
The Episcopal Diocese of the Rio Grande presented Casa Hogar
with a $2500 grant. The grant application, sponsored by St.
James, Alpine, was submitted last fall; Liz Hightower helped put
together the financial information requested. The diocese has
supported Casa Hogar for the past several years by grants or
donations including a large donation of linens earlier this year.
Mike Soukup of the diocese’s Borderland Ministries contacted
Nancy Antrim of St James to see how they could help. The Rev.
Kay Jennings of St. James, and a member of the Borderland
Ministries Board, along with Nancy, Petra Tucker and Victoria
Bannister visited Casa Hogar and learned they needed industrial
size pots and pans for the kitchen. The home prepares three
meals a day for over 30 children, and their current pots and pans
were in very bad condition; so, Borderland Ministries donated a
number of pots and pans. Mike accompanied Kay, Petra and Bob
Brewer to Ojinaga to deliver their donation.
