The Puerto Rico Mission is an intensive process of evangelization. It lasts one week each year. The location of the mission in Puerto Rico will vary from year to year. The Piarists’ approach in the mission will be simple, clear and efficient – to embrace families so that children and young people, with their families, can find human and Christian strength, which is necessary to make well founded vocational options.
We have always utilized a partnership model by ”giving them not the fish, but the fishing rod.” Suddenly, when we least expect, some of these efforts begin to bear fruits. Spiritual relationships and communities are renewed. The projects within the mission give the people a sense of ownership and make them proud and co-responsible for the maintenance of the church and the welfare of their community.
The Piarist run a mission in Ponce Puerto Rico to share love, teaching, compassion, reconciliation ministry, respectful brotherhood and financial assistance when appropriate. The project was established in 2018 to help the Piarist raise funds to aid in efforts in this project.
The yearly budget varies between $15,000 and $20,000.
