Miracles Do Happen: The Story of Juan Ana Coffee

San Lucas San Lucas

San Lucas mission go to www.sanlucasmission.org.


Guatemala is a country of striking contrasts. Breathtakingly beautiful countryside abuts desperate poverty. Thirty years ago, the Parroquia of San Lucas Toliman began its relationship with the people of Guatemala. The work started with recognition and appreciation of the rich Mayan culture and the heartfelt understanding that God's love is for all. The goal was simple: enhance and enrich the whole person - spiritually, intellectually, and physically. The mission is to fight the immediate effects of poverty and its underlying causes.

For over 50 years, the Diocese of New Ulm and friends from throughout the United States have provided tremendous support for the parish of San Lucas and the Mayan people. Without this support, better educational opportunities, health care, and living conditions would not have been possible.
