PROJECTS

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. 

CURRENT PROJECT 

St Peter’s Church. Ghana, Africa. April 2020 – Present

St. Peter’s Church in Keniago, Ghana, Africa! The Catholic community in Keniago is vibrant and is growing fast, despite the extreme poverty, the poor road conditions and the environmental devastation from deforestation created by illegal mining. Construction of a church has already begun thanks to the availability of local resources. So far the foundation, framing and roof have been completed, but the church does not have the funding necessary to complete the project. That’s where we come in! Build the Faith has agreed to help with the completion of the church.

 

 

RECENTLY INAUGURATED 

Iglesia del Sagrado Corazón de Jesus y María. Diriamba, Carazo, Nicaragua. Inaugurated Feb 8th, 2020

Our latest project of a new church in Diriamba, Carazo, Nicaragua, a predominately agricultural community of 2000 people, approximately 41km southwest of Managua.

The church was consecrated on Feb 8th, 2020 by Cardinal Brenes , to the sacred heart of Jesus and Mary. We give thanks to God, to our Donors, and to our volunteers. We could not have done it without your support.  

 

PAST

Pequeñas Madres de los Pobres. Jose C. Paz, Argentina. Inaugurated  January 2019

Our second building project was completed on Jan 2019. The dilapidated building which housed the nuns of the Order Pequeñas Madres de los Pobres in Argentina, had recently collapsed. The new building houses these dedicated women and help them continue their work caring for the poor children of the streets.  The children they serve often suffer from abuse or are suffering from addiction to drugs and alcohol.  The nuns provide invaluable spiritual support and guidance to these kids.

 

Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe. Garagoa, Colombia. Inaugurated August 2017

Our first Church project was completed on August 2017. It was the only project our beloved founder Christina got to inaugurate. The church serves 3 communities in an area facing violence and poverty, and teaches faith to children that attend a public school next door.

We will serve as an instrument to bring close to God those who have distanced themselves or are struggling in their path to the catholic faith.
