We have experienced a lot of bad news over the past year. But now, with Easter approaching, we get to celebrate some "Good News" - the new life that we receive from Jesus Christ.

When I think about good news and new life, I immediately turn my attention to our ministries in Tijuana, B.C., Mexico. There is truly an abundance of good news coming from the Missionary Oblates and our co-missionaries in Tijuana.

One example of this good news is that recently 38 young people in Tijuana were able to graduate from college thanks to the St. Eugene Scholarship Program. These scholarships are provided to teenagers and young adults who have shown a commitment to creating a new life for themselves through education.

One of the scholarship recipients was Mildred Juarez. She has been part of the Oblates' youth ministries in Tijuana for several years and volunteers to teach Catechism in our Oblate parishes.

Mildred graduated with a degree in psychology from the Universidad Autónoma de Baja California. Her scholarship covered most of her expenses including books and tuition. While attending college, finances were always tight for Mildred. Sometimes she had to decide between food and bus fare to get to school.

"I just want to thank everyone that has been part of my life for these four years of college," Mildred said at a graduation ceremony for scholarship recipients. "Thanks to the scholarship program and the donors that the Oblates have, my fellow graduates and I have been able to see our dreams to become professionals come true. "
