Capilla Sagrado Corazón
Violence and drug addiction plague the youth of Villa La Cárcova in Argentina - one of the villas miseria, or misery villages. The Sacred Heart Chapel, or the Capilla, is a small comprehensive care center for children and families in the poorest area of Villa Cárcova where no other Church presence exists. Padre Pepe, one of Pope Francis’ “priests in the slums” provides food, academic support, catechesis, sports and other recreation activities at the Capilla. Support this important mission.
