Editor, the Advocate:
I'd like to thank the Missionary Catechists of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary. For 70 years, the sisters served Our Lady of Sorrows and Santisima Trinidad.
I have lived in San Antonio since my husband, Jesse, died. For a rosary novena, three were in their chapel. My family is grateful for their spiritual support and all they did through the years.
During our 40 years in Victoria, our faith grew through Family Catechesis (Catequesis Familiar), retreats and home visits to teach about the sacraments and the Word of God.
I taught CCD for 17 years under their guidance and counsel. Their aim was to give all a strong foundation in religion. They met with the parents on Saturday mornings teaching the catechism so they could help their children.
They are humble, spiritual and true servants of the Lord. I wish they could continue to participate in the parish and stay forever!
Felipa Camarillo and family, Inez
