What is a virtual delegation?
A virtual delegation will be different, but we are excited about exploring new avenues for relationship-building and standing in solidarity with our partners. Our goals are the same as our in-person delegations – to share our cultures and our faith, to strengthen our long-term relationships, and to inspire action toward peace and justice.

We will combine pre-recorded “community visit” videos, 4 live sessions, and 3 current events presentations throughout the week to make up our virtual delegation.   All live calls will include Sister Parish members from the north and south.

What activities are planned?

  • Video “visits” and reflections
    Each day, we will share a written reflection and videos, including “community visit” videos, music videos, and a cooking video, that participants can watch in their own time.

  • Live Calls – Join as you can 

    Evening calls will be with people in U.S.,Guatemala and El Salvador (as technology permits). Daytime current events presentations will be in English – you can join live or watch/listen to the presentation afterward.
