Sister Parish, Inc.

Year of Encounter

We have gathered this year around the theme of encounter.   When Pope Francis speaks of the importance of building a culture of encounter, of listening to God calling us out of our house, of receiving visitors and visiting others, of receiving and giving love, it is hard to imagine a message more in tune with Sister Parish’s mission.  We chose this theme for the year 2016, but in truth, every year is a year of encounter at Sister Parish.  Everything we do is designed to foster meaningful encounters that broaden our understanding, compassion, and sense of family.

As 2016 draws to a close, we celebrate our loving Sister Parish community by sharing photo albums from recent delegations and stories on our blog.


Sister Parish, Inc. promotes intercultural and ecumenical understanding by establishing linkages between churches in the United States and faith-based communities in Central America.  Our members tell you more in the brief video Introduction to Sister Parish.
