Welcoming Father Francisco Javier Aguilar and commending his partnership with the Houses from the Heart initiative to provide housing for needy people in El Salvador.

 

WHEREAS, Father Francisco Javier Aguilar, a native of El Salvador, completed his training for the priesthood in 1960. He taught for many years at the Jesuit College in San Salvador. One of his many activities was helping to establish the Salvadoran Foundation for Housing to promote and build housing for the poor and it has built more housing than any other, private or public efforts, in all of Central America; and

WHEREAS, Western Forms, in conjunction with the Ward Charitable Foundation, is donating two sets of forms to Houses from the Heart, a new not-for-profit group, who help Father Francisco Javier Aguilars efforts to build houses for the people in El Salvador; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

That the Mayor and Council hereby welcome Father Francisco Javier Aguilar to Kansas City and congratulate him on his tremendous efforts to provide aid and reconstruction for the people in El Salvador; and

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that this Resolution be spread upon the Minutes of the Council in testimony thereof and that a copy hereof be presented to Father Francisco Javier Aguilar in token of the appreciation of the Mayor and Council for his efforts to provide housing for the people in El Salvador.
