El Salvador 2008: Day 9 – Santa Maria Virgen
Today is Sunday and our last full day in El Salvador. We returned to Santa Maria Virgen this morning to worship with our sister parish. Father Julio and Mark co-celebrated, with assistance from three Yale Divinity School students who are also visiting El Salvador.
Following the service was a special program for the mothers in the parish, including live music and performances by the children.
On our drive back we stopped at two sobering places. One was at the edge of a shantytown in the center of San Salvador.
Tonight we will reconvene as a group at 6pm for a team meeting to debrief on our week, followed by a last dinner. The main dish will be papusas, the national dish of El Salvador.
