Since 1994, St. Joan of Arc has had a Sister Parish relationship with the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe in the community of Tierra Nueva II near Guatemala City. Our hermanamiento (sister parish relationship) has been a rich experience of solidarity and love for both our parishes. The central component of our relationship is our annual delegation, either from SJA to TNII or from Guatemala to Minneapolis.
This year, from August 1 – 11, ten St. Joan or Arc parishioners are journeying on delegation to Guatemala. They are living, worshipping and traveling with our family in TNII and learning about the historical, social, political and economic situations in Guatemala. They are also sharing faith and forming deep friendships.
We are following the Sister Parish delegation starting with their send-off by St. Joan of Arc, all the way through their travels in Guatemala. Please check in regularly for updates, and support their journey of faith and friendship with your prayers.
