We are relieved to report that the recent eruption of Volcán de Fuego in Guatemala did not directly impact our Sister Parish in Tierra Nueva II (TNII). However, the devastation is widespread and many Guatemalans have died.
Here is a message from Miriam in TNII: "We request prayers for all the Guatemalan families affected by the tragedy caused by the Volcán de Fuego eruption. Our Parish, in solidarity, is collecting food and clothes for our brothers and sisters in need."
Also in solidarity, members of the SJA Sister Parish community and the Sister Parish board of directors are donating funds for relief supplies. These emergency goods will be delivered next week by a parishioner from St. Joan of Arc.
TNII has been at the front of providing relief for those devastated by the volcano. Check out the slideshow on this site to see them in action:
