The Archdiocese of Guadalajara, Mexico, has joined the Jewish community to provide 40,000 Christmas dinners for the poor this Dec. 25 in an initiative called “10,000 Christmases in one.”
The event, which is being held for the fourth consecutive year, will bring food from 40 parishes and a shelter to those most in need in the Guadalajara metropolitan area.
Father Javier Magdaleno Cueva, secretary chancellor of the Archdiocese of Guadalajara, said at a press conference that this initiative seeks to “bring hope to those whose lives have been difficult or who have suffered that year.”
He also noted that the number of people who benefit from this event increases every year.
