Thanks to our generous supporters and two matching grants we surpassed our goal and made more than $5,000 for Sister Parish Inc. through our Solidarity Walks this year. Thank you to all who participated. Together we are changing lives, one relationship at a time.
Thank you to everyone at People of Hope who gave us such a warm welcome. We loved learning from you and sharing with your community during worship and meetings, community meals, a Bible study, and a guided walk in the woods. Thank you for being part of the Sister Parish family.
Communities in El Salvador and around the world celebrated the canonization of Saint Oscar Romero on October 14. In the homily in San Salvador, Fr. Father José María Tojeira emphasized that, to truly follow the example of Saint Romero, people must continue to work toward a more just world.
The St Joan of Arc Sister Parish committee has been busy this fall between delegations with a Tamalada and movie night and other activities. Danville Congregational Church has hosted speakers and organized to send student care packages and Christmas cards.
The 2017 annual report is now available, complete with delegation stories, reflections from board and staff, beautiful photos and the financial report. Thank you to all of the Sister Parish communities, donors and supporters who make our work possible! We could not do this without you.
