From Christ Light of Nations School Scholarships
The Rivera Family has 8 children; 5 have graduated from Christ Light of the Nations School, two children are currently enrolled in the school. Mr. and Mrs. Rivera are hard-working Hispanic parents, however Mrs. Rivera had to stop working several years ago due to a life-threatening liver condition. Even then she continued with the help of her children to sell food on Sundays from the back of her car at Our Lady of Guadalupe parish to make extra money.
The whole Rivera family has always pulled together to provide for their family. She has gifted the staff at Christ Light of the Nations School over the years with produce from the truck farm where they work. She has collected clothes and household items for Hispanic families in need of help. Without assistance from the school through the Annual Catholic Appeal these children would not have received a Catholic Education.
