Dear Family and Friends, our Redemptorist Community pleads with the Lord and his Blessed Mother at our Community Prayer for all of you, esp. those who have suffered the death of a loved one in the Pandemic, as well as for the sick, those who are out of work and those who struggle with very small resources.

I would like to update you on The Juan Neumann Center which, according to the motto of the Redemptorists, toils for the poor and most abandoned, esp. immigrants. Since January, close to 300 persons/families have passed through the Center, applying for asylum, begging to be reunited with their loved ones, needing help for unaccompanied children, victims of domestic violence or victims of a felony. We offer all of them a warm welcome and the time they need.

Because of the Pandemic, our income has declined with the Center absorbing the expenses. That is why we are asking you, if your resources allow, to make a donation. We shall be most grateful. In this way we will continue to help our sisters and brothers in their great need.
