Thank God, parish donations have increased, after being devastated by the disruption caused by covid. The seminary is receiving plentiful bags of rice and beans from the parishes. Inflation continues to make purchasing food burdensome for many, however, and more expensive items like meat, milk, and eggs are not as easily available. The seminarians do raise a little of their own: a couple of pigs and a few cattle are usually fattening in the back pasture; and there is a large orchard of citrus trees.
Given the rather austere conditions there, Friends of Campos would like to send at least $1000 USD a month to help provide quality, nutritious food for these young men, who will be our next generation of traditional priests!
If you can make a recurring monthly donation, we appreciate that, but any donations and your prayers are most welcome.
