Sister Parish, Inc.

“Like a ring on a finger”

During mass, the two delegates shared their reflections about the 25-year relationship between St Joan of Arc and Tierra Nueva 2.  “St Joan of Arc never said, ‘They are poor, we will just do what we want’. Instead, you taught us that we can make our own decisions and that we have the right to do so as human beings.”

2019 Solidarity Shout Out

Thanks to our generous donors and our fundraising team, our special fundraiser was a success!  If you haven’t had the chance to contribute yet, you can still donate here to help us reach our $20,000 goal.  These funds will allow us to provide travel scholarships and strengthen our capacity.

Thank you for hosting

Thank you to everyone in Downers Grove who helped host the April Sister Parish board meeting.  We had a wonderful time  with you all.  We hope our visit was also helpful to you in raising the profile of Sister Parish in your congregation.  Contact us if you are interested in hosting the board at your church and/or serving on the board.

Accompanying friends

Sister Parish staff Julieta Borja reflects on the importance of accompaniment in our relationships, through joys and sorrows.  This is the story of a family in Potrerillos and the accompaniment of their partner church in Decorah through hardship and loss.
