Listening to dreams - Our work in Chiapas, Mexico
When girls spend day in, day out tending sheep and weaving, you wouldn’t expect them to ask for more work—especially homework. But six young women in the highlands of Chiapas longed to learn, so they turned to the MSJ Dominican Sisters.
For 42 years, our sisters have served 60 communities in the San Andrés Apóstol parish. In October 2016, that ministry took on a new dimension. For three days every month, the convent is transformed into a language lab, writes Sister Helena Im, as these young women “live the dreams of the whole village.”
