The Pastoral Center of St. Francis of Assisi, formerly called Shekina, as we know this center was in the process of being handed over to the Archbishop for a year and a half. In the assembly of the circle that took place in Bolivia it was decided to reopen it, but before putting it in execution the maintenance of the Infrastructure was done since the walls had been unpainted, rusty iron door, electrical system, hygienic services and other things more by the phenomenon of the coastal child. Thanks to the Generalate who supported us with money to make all the arrangements we mentioned, we need to make arrangements, but little by little we are.
