Cuba Companionship Ministry

San Juan

 

CELEBRATING OUR SISTER CHURCH SAN JUAN BAUSTISTA IN FLORENCIA, CUBA AND ALL THE EPISCOPAL PRIESTS IN CUBA

 

Mission Statement

 

The Cuba Companionship Ministry mission is to build a mutually engaging relationship between the Episcopal Church in the United States (ECUSA) and the Episcopal Church in Cuba (ECC) with the  ultimate purpose of having a closer relationship with God.

 

 

More specifically we are engaged in:

 

  • Spreading God's love and peace among our Cuban friends
  • Giving and receiving immeasurable joy from our relationship
  • Receiving any giving of gifts of caring and love with all its benefits to both giver and receiver
  • Having the privilege and joy of hosting Cubans in our home or parish

 

Our instruments of peace in achieving this engagement with our companion church San Juan Bautista include MUTUAL PRAYER, email communications, MUTUAL PRAYER, snail mail communications, MUTUAL PRAYER, personal visits via trips to Cuba, MUTUAL PRAYER, hosting Cuban Episcopalians when they can make it to America, MORE PRAYER and BREAKIING BREAD TOGETHER.   

 

The derivation of the word COMPANION: “com” (or “con”) means “with” or “together” plus “pan” meaning “bread” = breaking “bread together.” Think about it the next time you take comm-union, “all of us together in one union.”

 

The Rt. Rev. Griselda Delgado del Carpio
