Mezquital in San Antonio with the Sisters
A lovely photo from the recent sale the Sisters had in San Antonio. These all hand-made items from Mezquital, whose population is composed primarily of the indigenous tribe known as Hñähñü. The project is two-pronged: providing pastoral formation and offering much needed community service in this isolated area. Its goal is to bring the populations of Mezquital and the surrounding pueblos closer together to create stronger ties with their faith community and the parish.
