In the latest article on The B.C. Catholic website, Ramon Gonzalez of the Western Catholic Reporter shares the journey of a young group of Edmonton parishioners assisting children with HIV in Guatemala:

Roxanne Dias says her life changed after she spent 14 days in a Guatemalan orphanage interacting with small children with HIV/AIDS.

“It changed what I want to do with my life,” says the 17-year-old student. “At first I just wanted to get rich and live the life. Now I just feel I have to go back. All these children want is love.”
