Sister Parish Annual Retreat

On March 21, 20 SJA parishioners involved in Sister Parish gathered to reflect, sing, pray, plan, cement friendships and nurture relationships. Among the highlights of the day were:

  • Reflections on the words of Pope Francis, who urges us to create a "culture of solidarity".
  • A Skype call to exchange greetings with several members of our Sister Parish in Tierra Nueva II, Guatemala, with whom we have maintained a 21-year relationship.
  • The creation of a video message to those in TNII who couldn't be on the call.
  • A prayer of thanks for those who sustain our relationship now and those who have sustained it over the last 21 years. A special remembrance was made of Father George Wertin, whose "true-heart yearning set this (Sister Parish) mission in place".
  • A celebration of all we've accomplished in the past year.
