At the St. Anthony Shrine, ‘All Are Welcome’
With over 400,000 Latinos in the Boston area—many of whom are Catholic—the Church has its work cut out for it in reaching and enriching the faith lives of this growing population. Enter Brother Mario Gomez-Tejerina, OFM.
Director of Latino ministry at the St. Anthony Shrine and Ministry Center, Brother Mario brings not only his energetic faith, but also the language and cultural background of those he serves.
Advancing God's Kingdom
O God, who gives your missionaries the zeal to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to the nations, give us the desire to advance your kingdom wherever we may be. May we share a deep desire to show you more clearly to others, to love you more dearly in others, and to follow you more closely in all that we do each day of our lives. Amen.
