Brother Chris Posch, the Franciscan priest who is director of the diocesan Office of Hispanic Ministry, and six delegates from the diocese will begin a 10-day visit to Wilmington’s sister diocese of San Marcos in Guatemala. The two dioceses recently celebrated the 10- year anniversary of their solidarity partnership with a Mass and luncheon held at St. Margaret of Scotland in Glasgow.
The Wilmington delegation will visit to medical clinics and churches in El Rodeo, San Pablo, and El Quetzal as well as areas ravaged by earthquakes last November.
Delegates include Kelley and Mallory Freebury of St. Catherine of Siena, Wilmington; Xylene Graves of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, Bear; and Stephanie Gallagher of St. Margaret of Scotland, Nada Jones from Holy Family in Newark, and also Emily Carpenter, a teacher at Christ the Teacher School, Newark.
All are encouraged to pray for the delegates to Guatemala and follow the delegation daily from June 19 through June 29 at www.twitter.com/smsolidarity or https://www.facebook.com/pages/SanMarcos-Solidarity/172185392956344.
