Ministries & Projects



Thomas uses his skills to teach at the seminary in Aguacate, and assists with teaching lay leaders at parish and regional retreats. Part of his job as a teacher at the semianry includes preparing coursework and translating related text from English to Spanish. Elizabeth also hopes to use her experience with teaching elementary through high school ages to begin a children's ministry in the village of Aguacate.


Elizabeth uses her experience in chanting and liturgical music to assist with expanding the music repertoire and knowledge of the semianrians and women's choir in Aguacate. Eventually they will be able to teach other choirs and communities in Guatemala and Southern Mexico to encourage full participation during the Liturgy and other church services.
