Each year, the youth group at our Sister Parish in Guatemala takes the initiative to plan and conduct a Christmas party for younger children in their community. This year’s theme was, “Take care of your planet: Let us love the world as Christ loves us.” Check out the photos of the Children’s Christmas Party to see all the decorations of recycled material – very impressive!
This event involves youth leaders in the development of their community and helps younger children strengthen values and share time together in a healthy way. SJA and our Sister Parish committee provide financial assistance. We give thanks to all those involved for the inspiring work they do to build a more hopeful future.
