Annual Report

Our 2019-2020 Annual Report is now available. Thank you to all who have helped us strengthen and deepen our relationships through this difficult time.

El Salvador news

Julieta Borja shares a video update from El Salvador about the aid efforts in communities and the February elections. We also share links to more information about events that garnered international attention in May.

Mutual aid

Last year, communities in El Salvador organized to support people in need due to the economic and health impacts of the pandemic. We are honored to work with Sister Parish committees in this mutual aid effort.

Zoom with Rubia

See video of our Zoom conversation with Rubia Guardado of the CCR about the February elections in El Salvador and the reality of the pandemic in the Chalatenango region.

A year like no other

Board member Cathy Burrell shares a message about transitions and connections for 2020.  “In addition to providing emergency relief, we needed to find ways to continue to grow our relationships between the north and south even through a global pandemic.”

Sister Parish mass

In November, St Joan of Arc in Minneapolis organized a Sister Parish-themed mass.  Watch the video, with video prayers from Tierra Nueva 2, an amazing song, and comments by Jeff and Rita.  What a great way to share!

Pandemic funds

We are raising funds for relief for Sister Parish communities affected by the coronavirus emergency in Guatemala and El Salvador. Follow our blog to see examples of how Sister Parish communities are using the aid to make a difference in their communities.
