Orthodox Guatemala


Last month, our parish hosted a visit from an Orthodox priest from Guatemala and several Guatemalan faithful who live here in Kitsap County. At Saint Elizabeth, we have received and supported two American missionaries to Guatemala in recent years. They are Jesse Brandow and Father Juvenal (Repass), and appear with other missionaries in the photo above. Recently, we heard from Jesse that he is back in America on furlough to tour parishes and speak about the Guatemalan Orthodox Church. On October 20 he will be at nearby Saint Katherine Church in Kirkland and Holy Assumption Church in Seattle. Then, on November 17, Father Juvenal will be visiting our parish.
