Superiors from México Central share what they learned from the earthquake



‘The reconstruction of the Ixtaltepec house concerns us exclusively’

Almost a month after the earthquake of 8.2 degrees that took place on Sept. 7 in Mexico leaving the Marist work of Ixtaltepec nearly totally destroyed, the superiors of México Central have published a letter dedicated to the Institute.

In it, the provincial superior, Brother Jose Sánchez Bravo, and the vice provincial, Brother Javier F. Salcedo Camerana, underscore that “the reconstruction of the Marist house of Ixtaltepec is something that is our duty exclusively, as Brothers.”

“We believe that we cannot nor should use the resources that people of good will and who trust in us are depositing to support the reconstruction of schools or houses in Oaxaca,” they wrote in a letter published on Oct. 2 at the City of Mexico.

The Brothers also took the opportunity to share what they have learned these days like being grateful, having faith and hope, being charitable, joining forces and discerning.

A special account has been opened for donations for the reconstruction or repair of schools in Oaxaca; its first aim will be to establish 20 provisional spaces, while the Internado Guadalupano and the Asunción Ixtaltepec Bachillerato are rebuilt. We invite you to join this initiative and solidarity with who else needs it.

FMSI has also opened a bank account to gather donations for the Marist work at Ixtaltepec. These are the two optional bank accounts below to donate, either directly to the province of Mexico or via FMSI.
