A number of Sister Parish faith communities marked Lent and Easter this year by making colorful sawdust carpets and participating in processions. The tradition is widely practiced in Guatemala, as well as other Latin American countries and Spain.
We’ve posted pictures from this year’s sawdust carpets below.
If you like what you see here, we encourage you to create your own sawdust carpet to build community and raise awareness.
