Sister Parish, Inc. promotes intercultural and ecumenical understanding by establishing linkages between churches in the United States and faith-based communities in Central America. The linkages are based on person-to-person contact through ongoing communication and delegation travel.
Our members tell you more about our work in the brief video Introduction to Sister Parish.
Join Sister Parish for 2016 Open Delegation
We are planning a 2016 open delegation that will participate in the Southern Encounter with members of Sister Parish communities in Central America. The delegation will also visit sites of historical and spiritual significance in both El Salvador and Guatemala. The delegation is open to the public. Please contact us for more information.
A Culture of Encounter – Reflections from recent Board meeting
People often ask what we do at our in-person board meetings. Tom Pouliot shares his reflections about “a culture of encounter” after our November 2015 meeting generously hosted by Danville Congregational Church. In addition to sharing updates from the church’s partner community, planning for the year, and reporting on administrative, financial and recruitment work, the meetings are a time to connect with and support the US churches. Please contact us if your church is interested in hosting in 2017.
Celebrating our 2015 Solidarity Walks
This year, numerous Sister Parish member communities participated in the Solidarity Walk, inspiring us with their reflections, signs, fundraising and creativity. We hope you enjoy the video below from the walk in Guatemala.
