Dick Horstman – Houston Chapter

The Benedictine Sisters of Boerne have a mission house in Eagle Pass, Texas, across the Rio Grande from Piedras Negras, Mexico. Sister Ursula Herrera is the only Sister at the house. Last December, the Sisters converted the house to a migrant respite shelter. 

The migrants are delivered to the house around 7:00 in the evening. Sister feeds them dinner, gives them a change of clothes, and they sleep one night at the house. Sister feeds them breakfast the next morning, and they are then picked up at 9:00 AM to travel to San Antonio. Sister needs help cooking, washing bedding, making beds, cleaning and sorting clothes, buying groceries, etc. She averages approximately 28 migrants a night.

Sister does not have room for a group of volunteers. She has a very nice apartment with a full bath in a detached garage for two volunteers.   It is an ideal setup for a couple.

Because Sister Ursula is very busy, if you are interested in volunteering or have any questions, please contact me, Dick Horstman, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
