San Lorenzo Parish’s New Hall Honours the 10 Basilian Founders

November 24, 2022

10 Founders Hall

The recent renovations of the Saint Basil Community Centre in Tehuacán, Puebla, México included a new parish hall named in honour of the Congregation’s 10 founders.

Basilian scholastic, Óscar Martínez Ávila, CSB, oversaw the renovations and felt the name, Salon Parroquial de los Diez Fundadores, was fitting. Just as the Congregation’s founders fulfilled their local community’s need for Christian education, the new building provides spaces to fulfil its community’s physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. The community centre serves the San Lorenzo Parish and provides many services to the local community. It contains a dentist office, pharmacy, parish archives, and a small food market.

The new building contains meeting rooms for parish council meetings, Christian family movement gatherings, catechesis, and workshops for human development. There are also rooms for personal and group therapy and counselling.
