OUR PERU SOLIDARITY: Our group meets again Monday May 8 at 7pm in the parish center. St Xavier “twins” with La Parroquia de la Virgen de Nazaret (the Jesuit parish of the Virgin of Nazareth) in Lima, Peru. Our “twinning” relationship is a bridge where God’s love flows in both directions. Both our parishes learn to care, share and pray for one another. These meetings are open to anyone. It is part of our parish-wide commitment to our sister parish in Peru. Mary, Virgin of Nazareth, pray for us.
