We send blessings for the 6 delegates from our parish as they prepare for the upcoming trip to our Sister Parish, Las Margaurita II in Guatemala, which will take place in February!

Participants are excited about opportunities to experience normal, daily life in the village in this trip whose primary purpose is solidarity.  However, they are also bringing 6 used laptops to donate to a new computer education center.  This center will replace a former typing school in the village.  Children will be gaining certificates for Office Programs, which are necessary for entrance into many secondary schools. 

St. Francis of Assisi has approximately 40 computers to donate.  The remainder will be sent to Second Choices, a ministry of Passage Home.
