Sister Parish Committee
- Last Updated on Wednesday, 03 October 2012 20:57
Guardian Angels has a sister parish, Church of Saint Rita’s, in Teustepe, Nicaragua. Guardian Angels’ Sister Parish Committee oversees this relationship. The Committee sends delegations to Teustepe almost every year and receives delegations from Teustepe about every third year.
The relationship has existed since the mid-1980s. The relationship is primarily one of accompaniment (described as hermanamiento), cultural exchange, praying for each other, and responding to emergency needs.
Since the 1990's, we work with Association of Kaíros Foundation and School. The committee sells fair trade coffee and receives two plate collections to finance their trips to Nicaragua.
Sister Parish meets on the third Tuesday of each month. If you are interested, consider joining our Sister Parish Community Group!
