February 20, 2017 – San Pedro River

Today, students and teachers from the Academy of the Holy Angels in Demarest, New Jersey walked with us toward the San Pedro River to pray for and remember the spirit of MARIA ESTHER ALARCON CRUZ, whose remains were found a few miles north of the Mexican border, on October 8, 2007.  She was 37 years old when she left her home and family trying to fulfill her dream of offering a full and meaningful life to her children and grandchildren.  As a group we sang, in full voices, that “All are Welcome, All are Welcome, All are Welcome, in this place”.
