The Omaha Archdiocese and the Diocese of Huehuetenango in Guatemala are sister dioceses. Within our sister diocese, we have a sister school in Santa Eulalia.
There are economic difference between our schools. For example the tuition at Santa Eulalia is about $50 per year, but many families struggle with this and some have to choose which child to send to school. We sometimes do fundraisers to support our sister school, our primary aim is to nourish a relationship between us. We write letters to those in our sister school and they write letters to us. In the process we learn that we aren’t so different from one another. We will continue to nourish this relationship with our sister school.
This summer three Ixim missionaries traveled to Santa Eulalia. We anxiously await seeing their pictures and hearing their stories.
