"The greater the work the more
important it is to establish it on
a solid foundation. Thus it will
not only be more perfect; it
will also be more lasting.”

St. Louise de Marillac

“Be diligent in serving
the poor. Love the poor,
honor them, my children,
as you would honor
Christ Himself.”

St. Louise de Marillac

 

Daniel Comboni Community Clinic Celebrates 25 Years

The community of Mixco, Guatemala, came together in May to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Daniel Comboni Community Clinic, opened in 1995 with the help of Comboni Priest, the late Father Bill Jansen, and Sister of Charity of Cincinnati Sarah Mulligan. For a quarter of a century the clinic has provided health and education services and programs to the people of Mixco and surrounding areas. S. Sarah has ministered as the clinic’s director for 26 years. The anniversary celebrations included a community walk on May 4 and a Mass and presentation on May 5 that included a reenactment by high school students of S. Sarah and Fr. Bill. The Sisters of Charity were also presented with a book to commemorate the clinic’s years of service. View more pictures here.
