Scholarship Students’ Visit – March, 2020

In March, 2920, three scholarship students, Iris Cañenguez, José William Mejia, and Yanira Gricel Coto and the Director of FOCES El Salvador, Nuria Monico, will visit Albuquerque for several days.  Nuria will speak in honor of St. Oscar Romero on the anniversary of his assassination at the 8:00 am Spanish Mass at St. Terese Little Flower Parish in Albuquerque. A reception will follow.
FOCES supporters, Paul Robledo and his wife will host a reception fundraiser during the visit. It will be a great opportunity to meet these outstanding scholarship students who are preparing to graduate from college.  Anyone interested in the projects and students we support is welcome to attend. Please call 505-243-1509 for more information.
