Regretfully, the Outreach for Nazareth Orphanage trip will be cancelled due to safety concerns over the spread of COVID-19 (Corona Virus). We will monitor the ongoing situation and follow the advice and guidance of federal and state officials and health agencies, as well as adhere to the direction from our own Most Reverend Bishop Robert W. McElroy, Bishop of San Diego. May God bless us all.
Outreach For Nazareth Orphanage is a San Diego-based nonprofit which includes volunteers from St. Elizabeth Seton Church in La Costa, high school students, and other area organizations.
Several times a year, volunteers cross the border to Tecate in Mexico to work at the orphanage in activities such as building, repairing, painting, washing, and unloading donations. “Seeing the joy on the faces of the boys gives volunteers true satisfaction from their work,” says Father Kelly.
Are you looking for a way to help with God’s Work? There are several ways you can do so with Nazareth Orphanage in Tecate, Mexico.
Our Parish Outreach program to the Nazareth Orphanage in Tecate, Baja California, is critical to support their ongoing mission and values. For 50 years Nazareth Orphanage has housed 50-60 young boys at any given time. In doing so, the orphanage has forever changed the life course of more than a thousand children and their families. To continue in the orphanage’s mission of Family togetherness, the Orphanage has begun accepting young girls and/or sisters of current boys who can also benefit from the orphanage and its mission of Family togetherness. How can you help? We schedule four trips to Tecate, MX each school year. Next one is: March 28, 2020.
