San Pedro Youth Group Raises Funds To Assist Catholic Church

Iglesia San Pedro y San Pablo, the Catholic Church in the small community of San Pedro in the Corozal District, opened its doors in the year of 1978. After almost three decades, the church’s building is in dire need of much refurbishing. Willing to solve the problem, a group of approximately 20 young and dynamic residents, have taken the task of garnering all necessary funds to carry out the project.

According to President of the Youth Group, Karina Ya, in order to fulfill the project the group has organized a fair for this coming Saturday August 9th at the Church’s compound.
