2016 Solidarity Walk

 

The Solidarity Walk is Sister Parish’s 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 reflection and prayer.

This year’s theme is “Year of Encounter” and we are celebrating how Sister Parish encounters affect our lives.  In November of 2016, Sister Parish members from the U.S., El Salvador, and Guatemala will gather for an event and the annual Solidarity Walk as part of this year’s Open Delegation.  We invite you to join us by organizing in your community.
