Since its incorporation in 2016, Build the Faith has worked in fulfilling its mission by:

  • Helping to build Catholic churches in areas of economic distress
  • Hosting Youth rosary workshops at Catholic schools, religious education classes and youth groups
  • Organizing and sponsoring Catholic retreats for men, women, youth and families, in the US
  • Hosting Seminars and formation events related to our Catholic faith

Build the Faith Projects focus on areas of economic distress around the world, empowering local communities to build their own churches, convents and retreat houses with our support. As of today, we have completed 3 projects in Colombia, Argentina and Nicaragua. Our current project is ongoing in Ghana, Africa.

Thanks to the wonderful collaboration of parishes, religious education programs, Catholic Schools, and Girl Scouts troops, Build the Faith is able to bring our founder Christina’s message of faith and hope to youth and the Catholic community through Rosary Workshops. In these workshops, aside from hearing Christina’s inspirational story, attendees learn the importance of the rosary and how to pray it. They are also given the opportunity to do community service by making a rosary, introducing our mission and Christina’s message to their fellow parishioners and/or school communities, and helping us to sell our rosaries in order to raise funds to contribute to the mission of Build the Faith. Contact us if you want to bring our Workshops to your Catholic community.
