Mountain Mission in Guajiquiro, La Paz, Honduras

San Juan Village Team with local lay leaders.
The Monday following the week of mission formation five youth teams headed into the mountains of Guajiquiro, La Paz to different villages in the parish of San Sebastian: San Juan, San José, San Miguel, Talanga and Guanacaste. We travelled in three pickups and dropped teams off at villages along the way. In each village there were daily programs for children, youth and families, and Mass, Confessions and Adoration when a priest was available.

I was part of the team that stayed in San Miguel (above and below), and celebrated Mass there daily, as well as in Talanga and another nearby village, San Antonio.
