A School That Builds Bridges

Our school near the U.S.-Mexico border witnesses to the unity of the Body of Christ by serving as a bridge between people on both sides. Our school, Lourdes Catholic School, is located in Nogales, AZ, near the U.S.-Mexico border, in the area known as “Ambos Nogales,” or “both Nogales.” Our school is a bridge between the people on both sides of the border. Living out our call to be one Body of Christ, we welcome students from both sides at our school.  We integrate social justice into our school’s curriculum and do bridge-crossing through service and advocacy: Our older students serve at the Comedor, a soup kitchen on the border for deported migrants, and are also active in the Kino Border Initiative, through which they meet with their Congressional representatives to urge just and comprehensive immigration reform, and organize and participate in events to educate themselves and others about border issues.
