In 1959, Brother Paul Schaefer was responsible for finding a new location for the work of the Brothers in Brazil. His investigations led him to many cities, eager for the brothers opened a new school, and the final choice was Campinas, offering the same advantages of São Paulo. The Archbishop, Dom Paulo de Tarso Campos, the mayor, other authorities and the families of the city encouraged the decision in Campinas and gave much support.
Many families are united in seeking to Brother Paul's donation of land and, soon, a wealthy family in São Paulo donated an area of several acres, for the construction of the new school.
