Bienestar Family Services founder announces retirement

Franciscan Sister Alicia Cuaron, founder and director of Bienestar Family Services of Centro San Juan Diego, the Denver Archdiocese’s center offering pastoral and family care to Spanish-speakers at 2830 Lawrence St. in Denver , announced her retirement in a letter emailed today. The letter is below.


Dear Friends:

I am excited to share with you the next step I have decided to take in my personal journey. Effective June 12, 2014, I will be leaving my position as director of Bienestar Family Services at Centro San Juan Diego of the Archdiocese of Denver. I am very proud of having been the founder and director for the past 10 years.  Bienestar continues to serve as a critical vehicle in providing the Hispanic community with education, leadership and family support services.

I have witnessed the tremendous growth and solid foundation within Bienestar Family Services and the Office of Hispanic Ministry. I am honored to have contributed toward the development of a strong educational institution and establishing higher quality standards for Spanish-speaking immigrants.

Although this is a bittersweet moment for me, I know that this mission will continue through organizations like Centro and individuals like you who are dedicated to the successful integration of Hispanics in this country. I want to express my sincere gratitude for your collaboration with Centro which is critical for the continued success and future of the Hispanic community.

I look forward to a time of spiritual renewal with my religious community of Sisters of Saint Francis. Thank you for a decade of friendship, inspiration and collaboration.
