Rio Grande -- (Puerto Rico) Tenth Anniversary of Monteclaro

On October 1, Monteclaro, a school of hospitality and culinary arts situated in Rio Grande, celebrated its tenth anniversary at the Fine Arts Theater in Guaynabo. Over a thousand people took part in the ceremony, including students, alumnae, teachers, friends and benefactors. A special invitee was Cardinal Luis Aponte Martínez, Archbishop Emeritus of San Juan. Also present was Msgr. Vicente Ariza Soler, Regional Vicar of the Opus Dei Prelature in Puerto Rico.

The purpose of Monteclaro “is to prepare women for employment in the hospitality industry, based on work well done, with a sense of responsibility, with an eagerness to excel and to serve others, and to contribute to the building up of a more human, more just, and more dignified world,” said Georgina Piñero Prieta, an educator and the first president of the board of directors of the institution.

The event ended with the projection of a documentary that included testimonies of people from the island who explained how the teachings of St. Josemaría had led them to seek sanctity through their ordinary work.
