48th anniversary of the fall of the 4 Dominican heroes

On Saturday, January 11, 2020, to remember the 48th anniversary of the fall of the 4 Dominican heroes, Los Palmeros, the progressive littoral of the Dominican community in New York City, family and friends gathered at the Parish Hall of our Santa Cruz-Holyrood Church. That day, the Martyrs of the Battle of January 12, 1972, Amaury, Welcome, Cerón Polanco and Virgilio Perdomo were honored. 

During the activity, a panel-conference was held with the community leaders Prof. Ramón Espínola, Pedro Papi Reyes and Prof. Marino Mejia. 

Detroit MLK Day

Seeking for Jesus with perseverance

I wonder what the Magi saw in the sky that first night. What was it that got them thinking? What was it that motivated them to pack and begin a journey to who knew where? Something had been revealed to them. But what was it? Was it in the sky, in their mind, in their heart? We don’t have much historical information about these wise people and their journey. But the interesting thing is that challenging all obstacles came to meet Jesus;

They looked for him and found him.
