About Us

Guadalupe Gardens is a missionary formation center of the New Evangelization located on the outskirts of San Marcos, Nicaragua. Paul Rush, the founder and an Ave Maria College graduate (Ann Arbor, MI), has dedicated more than a decade of his life to this place. The greater goal for all those who come or participate in the mission is to have an encounter with the living God, Jesus Christ, and to promote the True, Good, and Beautiful. Together we will promote these seven areas of society and culture:

1) Promotion of life and dignity of the human person

2) Promotion of healthy participation in family and community life

3) Promotion of human rights and responsibilities to one another

4) Promotion of charitable giving to help the poor and vulnerable

5) Promotion of solidarity with the suffering

6) Promotion of the dignity of work and the rights of workers

7) Promotion for the care of the earth and environment
