Diocese of Laredo/ Our CSA Gifts At Work
Every person can grow in holiness
Through our gifts to the Catholic Sharing Appeal, we directly support the religious education of children throughout the seven counties of the Diocese of Laredo. A special team of teachers help Sister Luz Maria Mondragon, HMRF to offer faith formation and a path to the sacraments for those children with physical and intellectual disabilities.
Catechesis is sufficient if it is according to a person’s cognitive level and takes into account individual strengths and challenges. Programs are adapted to the person’s individual chronological age or functional level, and take into account a number of factors including: expressive vocabulary and receptivity; attention span; possible perceptual difficulties; hyperactivity.
Classes are offered Saturdays at San Martin de Porres Church in Laredo, Wednesdays at Our Lady of Refuge Church in Eagle Pass and Monday at Santa Monica Mission, El Cenizo. For more information about this program in the Diocese of Laredo contact Sr. Luz Maria at (956) 727-2140.
