Our Lenten Mission

This Catholic ministry supports a convent, chapel, retreat center, Catholic School, girls’ dormitory, orphanage, day care and life skills center, medical facility, and nutrition center in Guatemala.

OCIMA ministers to impoverished and oppressed children and families in the face of gangs, drugs, trafficking, and government corruption—knowing that when basic needs such as clean water, housing, nutrition, and education are met, people are able to thrive and in turn help others around them.

St. Irenaeus has been supporting OCIMA for the past 24 years. Please join us this Lent in focused prayer, fasting, and almsgiving for the ministry of OCIMA.
