La Paz’s Departmental Legislative Assembly recently honored the Church for its ongoing tradition of charitable service both in the city and across the entire Andean nation.

Included in the award - which was presented on July 25 to local Church leaders - was also national recognition of the Church’s recent 50th anniversary in Bolivia.
