Meet Our Founders

You are about to meet three incredible women. Women who raised their hands when the opportunity to change the world presented itself. These women devoted themselves to a life of selfless work, determined to build access to education, health, and a safe space in the midst of a violent civil war.

Mothers of the Mission Campaign

From May 4th through May 8th, you are invited to participate in the #MothersoftheMission campaign to raise funds for the San Lucas Mission! As Mother's Day approaches, this campaign will give you an opportunity to learn about the literal and figurative mothers you support with your donations, from women who lead Mission programs to women who receive Mission services. We will also highlight the School Sisters of Notre Dame who co-founded Mission programs decades ago.

Why the Mission’s Construction Program Matters

Elvia was worried sick for her family, especially her girls. She did some of the most difficult things a woman can do in Guatemala: she filed a complaint with the authorities, she left her home, and she asked for help.

WE REACHED OUR GOAL! #2021Together

COVID-19 Update

In March of 2020, in response to the pandemic, Friends of San Lucas brought all of our long-term volunteers home and closed the visitors program.  We still don't have a firm date for reopening it. Covid-19 has been prevalent in San Lucas since last fall and the clinic has seen dozens of patients.
