10TH ST. HENRY DE OSSO
This project was born out of a
dream in the heart of Sister Hortense Coloma, STJ, rooted in the desire to find
an answer to the perils of illiteracy. It was envisioned to create
awareness in the community about this problem, to form a volunteer force that
would go out into the homes and from within educate and empower the family.
what first began as a family literacy program in February of 1993 has become a
family empowerment project named after the founder, St. Henry de Osso, who
strongly believed in the creative role of families in the development of
society... as he said, "Society will be what the family is..." Today, the
family project has extended to Bracketville, Campwood, Eagle Pass and Del Rio,
serving more than 200 families just in Uvalde and over 600 in the region.
The project continues to grow, fulfilling faithfully its mission statement and
trusting always in God's providence and the good will of people.
Our deepest gratitude to all the benefactors, staff, volunteers and friends who
have supported and shared this dream
throughout these past 10 years of
ALL FOR JESUS!
