Rebuilding a Historic Church in El Corpus

Step Up for Honduras Completes a Christmas Mission

On 9 June 2016 at 9:30 pm an earthquake hit Nicaragua and strongly affected a historic church in the Corpus Honduras which was built in 1585 by the Spaniards. The Church has been closed since then due to the caused structural damage. That’s why this winter, Step up for Honduras started a mission to restore the church for the people of El Corpus, so they can have Christmas Eve Mass in their local community.

Beginning on October 18th, with this video, a grassroots and social media-fueled effort began which brought contractors and laborers together for this benevolent cause. Our project started 12 days before Christmas and it was not a small undertaking but those that came together did an amazing job and brought a miracle to the people of El Corpus, Honduras.
