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.
We have raised $3,399 toward our $5,000 goal. Please give what you can – help us build relationships across borders.

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.
