LOS TOROS MISSION
Los Toros Azua, Dominican Republic - St. Joseph Grafton, Wisconsin USA
Thank you from Los Toros Students and Teachers!
All the students and teachers at the Los Toros Primary School wish to send a big “THANK YOU” to all the St. Joseph’s Child and Youth Ministry students, teachers and parents, and to all the St. Joseph’s Grade School students, teachers and parents for their overwhelming response to the School Supply Drive for the Los Toros Primary School. 

All the notebooks, construction paper, pencils, crayons, coloring books, pens, Spanish books, and numerous other school supply items were delivered in 3 full suitcases to the principal and staff (above photo) during our YAME Mission trip to Los Toros in May. These school supplies will fill some of the many needs of students and staff in Los Toros. They are delighted and grateful for the generosity of their brothers and sisters at St. Joseph’s in Grafton. 

Muchas gracias y Dios te bendiga!

Oración de Paz - de San Francisco 
O Dios, haz de me instrumento de tu paz 
Donde haya odio, siembre yo amor; 
Donde haya injuria, perdón 
Donde hay duda, fe; 
Donde hay desaliento, esperanza 
Donde haya sombra, luz; 
Donde haya tristeza, alegría 
Divino maestro, concédeme que no busque 
Ser consolado sino consolar; 
Ser comprendido sino comprender 
Ser amado sino amar; 
Porque dando es que recibimos; 
Perdonando es que tu nos perdonas 
Y muriendo en ti es como nacemos a vida eterna. 
 
Amen
