Southern Encounter and Solidarity Walk in Central America


In December, members of the Sister Parish Central American communities gathered for fellowship, training and organizational planning.

The members met in San Salvador for a tour of the historical sites there, including the cathedral and La Divina Providencia Hospital, where Saint Romero served and was assassinated while celebrating mass.

After the tour, the communities of Guarjila and Los Ranchos hosted the group for a weekend of workshops on migration, project management, and strategies for strengthening our sistering relationships.

Thank you to everyone who made this gathering possible. The encounters are a central part of our organization’s work to maintain healthy, mutually beneficial relationships.  The gatherings provide learning and travel opportunities for southern community members, create community across borders, and ensure that the southern communities participate in building the organization’s future.  We are especially grateful to the host communities Guarjila and Los Ranchos, individual donors, and International Partners in Mission for their contributions to this year’s gathering.
