Great Food for a Great Cause
This Sunday from 9 am until noon (or while supplies last), MOSA, the Men of St. Augustine's, will be giving away their delicious chicken and sausage gumbo. Yes, giving away! Donations are happily received and this year all proceeds will be dedicated to the Honduran Scholars program to benefit Hillary Barrera, our 2021-2022 student who happens to be our friend Mother Olga's own daughter.
Hillary has been preceded by ten other Honduran students who have had their lives changed by this opportunity. Having come from modest circumstances, they are now honors students in excellent universities studying such majors as chemical, electrical and civil engineering, veterinary medicine, public health and creative entrepreneurship. Their joy and gratitude for this experience has been immeasurable, and they plan to use the gifts they have been given to change the world. They have certainly become part of our St. Augustine's family, and we are blessed by their presence in our community.
Hillary may be the last student we are able to sponsor due to increasing costs, so this year will be extra special. Your generosity and prayers for Hillary are appreciated as you enjoy your delicious gumbo!
