The mission of the Guayaquil Mission is to empower the poverty-stricken community in Guayaquil, Ecuador, by providing quality education, community healthcare, and nutritional programs.
The Guayaquil Mission strives to provide impoverished children with a life full of hope and to give them an opportunity to escape the desperation of poverty through faith and education at the St. Vincent de Paul School in Guayaquil, Ecuador.
Through the generosity of the Sisters of the Incarnate Word, a free medical clinic was established at the Guayaquil Mission to serve the health needs of the poor. The goal is to improve health and reduce the death rates in the poverty-stricken communities in the outskirts of Guayaquil, Ecuador.
Thank you to the parishioners of St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church and School in Houston for your generous support of the Guayaquil Mission.
Most recently, seventh graders from SVdP Catholic School volunteered their time and treasures for the 2015 Guayaquil Mission Gala and Dinner by donating gift cards to raffle off during the evening, selling the raffle tickets the night of the gala, assisting with set up for the dinner, and serving as waiters and servers during the dinner.
Third graders at SVdP Catholic School also conducted a successful school supply drive to collect school supplies to be donated to the school in Guayaquil.
