Honduras Twinning Parish Program

What We Offer

 

The Honduras Twinning Parish Program seeks to build a lasting relationship between the people of San Francisco de Asis and Holy Spirit Parish through prayer in the Eucharist, common experiences of service  and fellowship as brothers and sisters in the Lord.Through the development of a Twinning (sister parish) relationship with San Francisco de Asis Parish in Texiguat, Honduras we seek to build a relationship of prayer, solidarity, charity and compassion.  We seek to grow in our understanding of justice and put into action our love of God and love of neighbor.  The bond we share enriches our families and communities.  Parishioners are invited to share in prayer with our brothers and sisters in Honduras.  They can also contribute money, medicine, eyeglasses, clothing and other supplies that we share with the community of Texiguat.  Those that are willing and able to travel to Honduras can share directly in fellowship, service and understanding of our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.  This experience bonds you with our friends in Honduras and also with fellow travellers.  Often a "life changing" experience!

Map of Honduras

We have had over 70 different travelers to Honduras.  These and other interested volunteers attend monthly meetings, which are held on the second Tuesday of the month at 6:00 p.m. in the Parish Center.  All are welcome!

Good-will offerings after masses on the third Sunday of the month provide the majority of funding to help our friends in the St. Francisco de Asis community with a variety of needs.  Small grants are available to provide scholarships for those wanting to travel to St. Francisco de Asis but who cannot afford the expense.  Contact John or Chris (see below) if you are interested in this ministry.  You do not have to travel to Honduras to be engaged in this ministry!!!

For those indivduals with a desire to visit our twinning parish, but have financial difficutlies, a scholarship may be available. Click here for more details.
