The parish of Our Lady of the Rosary, located in the Department of Chalatenango in the town of Nueva Concepcion, El Salvador, serves a rural area near the Honduran border that suffered greatly during the civil war and continues to suffer from the gang violence that has damaged all of El Salvador.

Father James Lynch, M.M. will construct a parish catechetical center which will serve as a parish center for parish meetings, pastoral formation, catechetical classes for 650 children and as a service center for the local community. There are 90 pastoral agents, 30 youth leaders, 110 catechists and more than 200 involved in other pastoral ministries. The parish groups include Charismatic Renewal, Marriage Encounter, Ministers to the sick, Social Ministry, Parish Council and Parish Finance Council. The catechetical center would provide meeting space for all these groups.

Your contribution will be greatly appreciated.
