El Quiché is the region of Guatemala that was most gravely affected by the recent 36-year war that ravaged the Guatemalan people.
The two-year Guatemala Mission project will cost almost $50,000. St Francis-in-the-Wood is handling the donations. Join us in a service, commissioning of the Guatemala Mission Support Team at St. Paul's, West End located on Jervis at Pendrell, one block north of Davie, Wednesday, September 30th at 7pm. Maya Spiritual Leaders Don Alejandro Ruiz and Doña Zoila Cruz will join us with traditional Maya prayers, and Diane and members of the choirs of St. Paul's and St. Francis-in-the-Woods' will be leading us in some Spanish hymns. Refreshments after the service.
