On a recent sunny Sunday morning, 25-30 parishioners gathered for a high-energy walk around the church’s neighborhood with several stops for reflection and prayer. We lifted up our 23 year relationship with our Sister Parish in Tierra Nueva Dos (TNII) in Guatemala, and we carried a banner covered with parishioners’ signatures and well-wishes collected after both masses. Our time together was filled with remembrances of our TNII family, mindful discussions about “who is our neighbor” and joyful songs with beautiful trumpet and guitar accompaniment. We closed with fellowship and treats — including creative cupcakes spelling out PAZ, SJA and TNII. See photos.
