La Gran Familia
“Let the little children come to me, and do not forbid them, for such is the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 19:24
It’s about God’s children … La Gran Familia is an orphanage ministering to abandoned and impoverished children who have been living in the hills and on the streets of Cuauhtémoc, Chihuahua, Mexico, located southwest of Chihuahua City. These children lived in desperate and deplorable conditions. Many had been “thrown away” … most had no hope. Now they are healthy, thriving children who have a lovely home and a family who loves and supports one another. It was started in 1998 and operated by Fr. Greg David-Spinks, until his untimely death on October 7, 2001.
We have a long term relationship with this mission that serves children who have been abandoned and children in the community whose families can no longer take care of them.
There are programs that allow us to make a huge difference in their lives. Honor a loved-one during the Diocese ‘Mother’s Day In-Gathering, Sponsor a Child.
