Father Fabretto
A Legacy of Love

100 Years After His Birth

Celebrating His Legacy of Love

When Father Fabretto first set foot on Nicaraguan land, he did not imagine that many years later his legacy would be more alive than ever. The humble oratorios he once built still stand in the teachers who serve children each day with the same love and spirit of service, the students who grow to become servant leaders in their own communities, and in the committed supporters who also make up an integral part of La Familia Fabretto.

 

To honor Father Fabretto, we are producing a documentary that will give new insight into his exemplary life and work in Nicaragua. Watch the trailer below.
