Update from Guatemala

Sister Joyce Kahle and Sister Terry Walter are co-directors of Casa Sofia, our residence for university students in Guatemala City.

Last July, Sister Terry Walter and I visited the Center for Formation — formerly Holy Mary of the Most Precious Blood School, founded by Sister Mary Faye Hellman — for the official dedication of their newly completed cancha, or basketball and soccer field, complete with bleachers.

It started with a ceremony inside with a flag procession, the singing of the national anthem, prayers and some brief talks. Then we moved outside for the ribbon cutting and some exciting soccer games. The celebration ended with a delicious lunch together.
