Bishop San Pedro Spanish Club

The Spanish Club Bishop San Pedro was founded during the 1990s. Its primary purpose was to promote the Spanish language and provide service to the community. The moderator for the club is Ms. Margarita Gurerero
The club provides service to different charities as well as the opportunity for students to attend various cultural activities. 
The club's most important service activity, "Canastilla José Martí", provides all the essential items (furniture, clothes, and diapers) for two deserving infants identified by the Respect Life Ministry organization. During the month of January, club members send out letters requesting monetary donations as well as baby products. The students spend the whole month collecting, classifying and purchasing the items needed for the support of these two babies. Once the babies are born (on or near José Martí's birthday on January 28), the students go to their houses, assemble all the furniture, strollers, high chairs, walkers, divide the cloth by age, make the bed, and spend the afternoon with the babies.

Among other activities Spanish Club members help in the Modern Languages Fair, the Belen Jesuit Invitational Competition, Kiwanis Christmas gift wrapping, and tutoring when needed.

Belen Jesuit Preparatory School was founded in 1854 in Havana, Cuba by Queen Isabel II of Spain.  The task of educating students was assigned to the priests and brothers of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits), whose teaching tradition is synonymous with academic excellence and spiritual discipline.  In 1961, the new political regime of Cuba confiscated the School property and expelled the Jesuit faculty.  The School was re-established in Miami the same year, and over the next decade, continued to grow.  Today, Belen Jesuit sits on a 30-acre site in western Dade County, only minutes away from downtown Miami.
