La Gran Familia

La Gran Familia is an orphanage ministering to abandoned and impoverished children who have been living in the hills and on the streets of Cuauhtemoc. These children lived in desperate and deplorable conditions. Many had been "thrown away" ... most had no hope. Now, they are healthy, thriving children who have a lovely home and a family who love and support each other. It was started in 1998 and operated by Fr. Greg David-Spinks, until his untimely death on October 7, 2001.

Fr. Greg's legacy of faith and love is carried on by Goretty Lerma, a teacher and assistant to Fr. Greg from the beginning of his ministry. Goretty is the primary caretaker of the children as director of La Gran Familia. She served on the vestry and is instrumental in the development of the church at Cristo Rey. She shared Fr. Greg's vision for the abandoned children from the beginning and has endured much persecution because of her involvement with the church.
