Chiapas, Mexico

The Sisters of St. Francis have served in Chiapas, Mexico, for more than 40 years. The purpose of the ministry is to help lay men and women grow in their faith and commit themselves to building the Kingdom of God by serving as catechists; coordinators of youth groups, women’s groups and basic Christian community groups; celebrators of Sunday paraliturgical celebrations where there are no priests; and health promoters in their communities.
