You can see the first video chat conversation with our sister parish Las Margaritas II in Guatemala, using computers from TFS that we recently donated! Our last team of delegates delivered the computers this past February and got them set up. Out Sister Parish ministry can now have a video conference with the village during their monthly meetings, which are the second Tuesday of the month at 7:00 PM. The next one is June 12 in Room 402.
It took a fair bit of work to decommission the computers and send them down, but we showed good environmental stewardship to reuse them in this way and saved several thousand dollars compared to buying new ones.
The next delegation to Guatemala is scheduled for Oct 28-Nov 5, 2012. Informational sessions will be held after the 5:30 Mass on June 2 and after the 11:30 mass on June 3 in Room 401, or you can attend the next monthly meeting. Please consider yourselves welcome to attend!
