Walking in Solidarity in Bloomington, Indiana

Members of the Board and St Thomas Lutheran Church

On November 9-10 Sister Parish board members gathered in Bloomington, IN for the fall board meeting. They were hosted by St. Thomas Lutheran Church, which has a Sister Parish relationship with Santo Domingo de Guzman, Chichipate in Guatemala.

In addition to working hard at their meeting, the board also had a great time visiting with their friends at St. Thomas. A highlight of the weekend was the joint St. Thomas-Board of Directors Solidarity Walk, where both communities came together to walk, pray, sing and support Sister Parish. The community of St. Thomas raised almost $800 for Sister Parish on their walk, in addition to the money that individual members of the board raised.

Thanks to our friends at St. Thomas for being such wonderful hosts, and for reminding us that hospitality is at the heart of the Sister Parish mission.
