Cost of Living

The problems of the country and government most certainly impact our daily living and affect each of us. Inflation is a very grave concern and constant factor in the way we serve others and our ability to sustain ourselves. In past years, we have bought bread for 5-7 pesos, which is $.37-$.52 in american dollars, and now spend 20-21 pesos, which is $1.49-$1.57 in american dollars, for one loaf of bread.

We are faced monthly with increased costs of food and our living expenses. The cost has tripled causing concern. This is a hard reality for our priory, because our incomes are very small in the priory. The inflation and high cost of living, just to survive, brings many to our door steps.
