Trip to Guatamala

In January, Sister Rosalie Ruesewald, oblate Kathy Jarvis, and Catholic Campus Ministry president Jennifer Verkamp visited El Salvador and Guatemala. It was Sister Rosalie’s first trip, but Kathy and Jennifer have visited several times. Kathy and Jennifer will be returning to Guatemala on March 18 with several parent-young adult teams from Sacred Heart Church, Charleston. In their trips, they have found several places in need of help—Ciudad de la Felicidad, an orphanage in Esquipulas, and a school run by the Benedictine monks of the Abbey of Jesus Christ Crucified in Esquipulas. This slide show also has a few pictures of El Salvador and the Shrine of the Black Christ in Esquipulas.
