Holy Week in San Lucas Tolimán was beyond amazing.

This is our Friend Father Victor, Priest of the local Parish

Holy week in San Lucas Tolimán was something I had never experienced. First of all, almost the entire town takes the week off work to prepare and participate in the celebrations. There are prayer services, Adoration, Masses, processions, celebrations, etc. 

 This is my friend Goyita and her daughter in Mass.

I am so often touched deeply by the sincere prayers and faith of the people here. I have come to believe that it is due to their difficult life circumstances and the little available opportunity that draws them closer to God. They truly rely on God for their daily needs.

Here is a short video from Holy Thursday.

On Good Friday the entire town began to make carpets of flowers in anticipation for the evening's processession. I have never witnessed an entire town working together on a single project like this. Here is a short video.

What a wonderful experience both Liz and I had. 

Have a wonderful Easter Season!

  1. A vivid display of their love for God, and why, in spite of their material poverty, they are in actuality much wealthier than we in North America may ever be! Thank you for sharing! Love to all of our brothers and sisters in Christ in San Lucas Toliman!


Thank you for taking the time to read our blog. Please pray for Liz and me and for our mission. May you be filled always with God's love. Deacon Pat
