About our Trip

This design was created by Fernando Llort, renowned Salvadoran artist, for our 30th anniversary celebration.

30 years!
Good Shepherd Parish in Shawnee, KS and the Community of El Buen Pastor in Aguilares, El Salvador are celebrating 30 years of twinning. This 30 year relationship will be celebrated in El Salvador when the Good Shepherd Parish delegation travels to El Salvador from June 6 – 14. We arrive at Monseñor Oscar Arnulfo Romero International Airport on Tuesday, June 6. Our model of accompaniment on this journey for the next 8 days is one of solidarity, listening, witnessing, conversing and literally walking with the people of El Salvador!

Please keep our 8 delegates in prayer. You can read about our intergenerational group posted on the About the Delegates page.

We have a very full and exciting itinerary that can also be accessed on this site.

It takes a “village” to send a delegation to visit our sister-community in El Salvador. The delegation would like to thank the parishioners of Good Shepherd who so generously donated items that will be carried to El Salvador in our suitcases.

Please join the delegation on Thursday, June 22 in the Social Hall at Good Shepherd Church for pupusas at 6:30pm followed by sharing of stories, experiences and photos at 7:30pm. Everyone is welcome!
