About us

Charity is at the core of our charisma.

The founder of the Don Orione Fathers, St. Louis Orione (1872-1940), was a devout Italian priest who committed himself to helping orphans, the poor, the sick and the elderly regardless of their ethnicity.

Please consider making a donation to help us maintain our Shrine and to make improvements. All your donations, no matter the amount, will be greatly appreciated.

Regarding generosity, St. Pauls has this to teach us: “Each must do as already determined, without sadness or compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” (2 Corinthians 9:7)

Divino Niño

“Charity, and only charity, will save the world.” We address the local needs of our community, supporting those in need in our vicinity to the extent that we can, especially when it comes to funeral and housing expenses.

Proyecto Solidario

We address the congregation’s needs at the mission level. According to the direction from Rome, we support global projects. Currently, we are supporting education and training projects in the Philippines and Kenya.

Pastoral de Rua

The “pastoral de rua” compassionately extends its care to those experiencing hunger and deprivation, offering sustenance and nourishment to individuals who find themselves without shelter, thereby addressing their most fundamental needs.
