Amigos Center

Yearly Archives: 2014

You are invited to participate in the installation of two new vicars for our Immokalee ministry on Sunday, May 4 at 5:00 PM (106 S. 2nd Street, Immokalee, FL  34145).  Vicar Saint Luc Charelus will finish his theological studies next year; Vicar Karl Glander is just beginning his 4-year program of study.  Both are enrolled in distance education programs of Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, MO and work under the direction of local mentors and supervisors.  Upon satisfactory completion they will receive a Theological Diploma which makes them eligible for a divine call to the pastoral ministry of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod.  Upon graduation, we expect Saint Luc to join our pastoral ministry team at Bethlehem Haitian Church – LCMS.  Karl will head up our English language mission in Immokalee.  Come and join us on this special day.

Amigos Center has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Fort Myers based Abuse and Counseling Treatment (ACT), Inc.   Our intention is to offer legal immigration help to undocumented victims of domestic violence who qualify for a special residency visa from U. S. immigration authorities. The ACT Emergency Shelter offers counseling and a safe haven for victims of domestic violence and their children.  Amigos Center has taken this action in the wake of the January 2014 closing of the Florida Equal Justice Center that had formerly provided this legal immigration help to the families of ACT.  Both ACT and Amigos Center are partner agencies of the United Way of Lee County.
