El Salvador Solidarity Ministry


El Salvador Mission Appeal

Mission Appeal celebrates and supports our “walk” with our sister parish, Our Lady of Guadalupe, Rutilio Grande, El Salvador and the people of the region.  While sharing the same faith and principles, this twinning relationship allows us to grow as disciples of Christ and implement what it means “to be one” with someone of a different culture.

A few examples of our support are:

Funding sustainable projects:

  • $13  -  You provide one senior citizen with one month’s food staples
  • $100  -  You provide one month’s transportation to mass for the community
  • $156  -  You provide one senior with one year of food staples
  • $400  -  You fund the school garden that provides the students with healthy snacks and teaches lessons in agriculture
  • $415  -  You provide tuition for one year for a middle or high school student
  • $1,000  -  You offer the opportunity to purchase seed or start a small business via the very successful micro credit loan program

These are just a few examples of programs our parish provides for the community and region.  100% of your contribution goes directly to the sponsorship of these programs.  During our visits and communications we witness the success and impact our continued support offers the community.

For your convenience, an online donation option is available below, or if you prefer, blue contribution envelopes are located in the Gathering Area at church. Please make check payable to:  St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish - Mission. Please prayerfully give from the heart in support our “fellow parishioners” of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Gracias!

Our El Salvador sister parish, Our Lady of Guadalupe in the village of Rutilio Grande, fosters our friendship with the people of Rutilio Grande as well as surrounding villages in El Salvador as we continue to build a long- term relationship through our founded principles of faith. The bond of personal experience is further strengthened as we walk together in solidarity. Parishioners can get involved in fundraising, advocacy, communication, teen connections, children’s ministry, women’s empowerment, health initiative, and home gardens, as well as becoming a delegate during a scheduled trip to El Salvador.

Date: First Tuesday of each month (July/August the Ministry takes a break)
Time: 6:30 PM
Location: Reflection RoomContact: Jackie Konkol, 414-543-5477, or send us a message

Parishioners: Meetings are more frequent the year we send a delegation to El Salvador. We need Spanish speaking translators, letters of encouragement, updating information and communication to the parish, people to investigate and communicate social justice issues of El Salvador or become an email/ Facebook pen pal to a resident of Rutilio Grande. You don’t have to travel to El Salvador to join the Ministry, however, once you get to know the people, you will want to join us on our next delegation!
