The Solidarity Walk is our largest outreach and fundraising event of the year. Every year, Sister Parish communities in the US, Guatemala and El Salvador raise money for Sister Parish by hosting Solidarity Walks in their communities. The walk is also a time to gather for fellowship and prayer. We hope you will join us by organizing a Solidarity Walk or alternative event in your community.
This year’s theme is “Embracing Our Neighbors,” an invitation to reflect on how our faith calls us to live in community with others. Once we start to truly see each other, we understand that we are not strangers at all. We really are neighbors, intertwined together in this world.
Materials to organize your Solidarity Walk:
If your community is not hosting a walk this year, you can still participate.
- Organize a “Solidarity Encounter”, a lunch, or other event to raise awareness about Sister Parish. A number of churches in 2015 organized alternative events and sent pictures to share with their partner community. If you need ideas, our Fundraising and Awareness Packet has great examples.
- Sponsor the Solidarity Walk in Guatemala and El Salvador. You can pledge to support the walkers from your partner community. All funds donated to this walk will be used for community visits and activities in Guatemala and El Salvador.
- Share our fundraiser page with your friends and family.
