“It is truly a privilege to serve” Mary Novotny
Arizona Companions Lisa Grant and Mary Novotny answered the call for volunteers shortly after the Jesuits began The Kino Border Initiative (KBI) in 2009. Recognizing the lack of basic necessities and man power they jumped right in and began traveling down to the border every month. They arrive in Nogales, Mexico armed with food, clothing and personal items for the multitudes of immigrants attempting to cross the border into Arizona. Each visit they they serve 3 meals and engage with the immigrants, especially the families and children.
Throughout the past 10 years many Companions and Sisters have joined Mary and Lisa on their monthly visits. In addition to serving where the need is greatest they have exposed many people to the plight of the migrant.
