Twinning Relationships


Santa Cruz Parish (El Salvador)

This relationship developed in 2002, when Deacon Don Meyer’s son, TJ, was serving in El Salvador as a Maryknoll lay missioner. That connection has deepened over the years, with groups from St. John the Baptist Parish traveling to El Salvador annually and visitors from there coming to Cincinnati every three years. In 2005 the parish established a sponsorship program for Salvadoran school children and includes over 100 sponsored students.


Our Lady of Guadalupe (El Salvador)

This parish split off of Santa Cruz parish several years ago, as a result we now have two sister parishes in El Salvador. Every trip to El Salvador includes visits to both parishes. We also have educational sponsorship in both parishes.
