Proclaiming the Gospel in word and deed November 22, 2012 by Cross Catholic Blog Father Rene Sal celebrating the Mass at his parish in Cerro Alto, Guatemala. This year, Cross Catholic Outreach partnered with Fr. Rene to spread Christ’s love in word and deed by building 40 sturdy new houses for these desperately poor Guatemalan families. This project has been a great blessing and a Gospel witness to families who previously lived in flimsy shacks built of dried corn stalks, plastic tarp, mud and tin. -Tony M.
