Sister Parishes Create Joyful International Friendships

Our parish partners with a parish in an impoverished region of El Salvador and forms bonds of friendship and solidarity. Our parish, St. Ignatius Parish in San Francisco, experiences the joy of friendship and solidarity through our joint social ministry with Parroquia San Antonio in Soyapango, a poor suburb of San Salvador.  Through our joint ministry, Las Vecinas de El Salvador, we pray together, share ideas, advocate for peace and social justice, and serve those in need. We share the life of the Holy Spirit through material support (such as scholarships, disaster relief, and support for a job training program), learning and advocacy about issues that impact our brothers and sisters, and the friendship, understanding and love we cultivate through visits, prayer and ongoing communication.
