Last September 4, Maciel Godburn of the Crime Survivors Ministry, together with Sally Peralta and Israel Gonzalez from St. Paul Catholic Newman Center, offered a prayer service in Wasco cemetery to help the family of Guillermo ‘Memo’ Leon celebrate his birthday.  Maciel led the surviving family in praying the rosary, Divine Mercy chaplet, and a healing prayer for the family of homicide victims. The Leon family released some balloons and doves as symbols of their love for Memo. 

Here’s some photos of the event:

Care for the Poor

Advocate the Global Food Security Act

Millions of people experience hunger every year due to conflict, climate change, economic crises and other causes. The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically increased food insecurity—nearly one in 10 people were undernourished in 2020.

You can help communities around the world overcome hunger and malnutrition. Urge Congress to reauthorize the Global Food Security Act, which helps farmers learn sustainable farming practices and produce more food, improves nutrition and reduces poverty.
