The Coban Connection

Guatemala Adult Pilgrimage 

For over fifteen years, adults from St. Pat’s have been traveling to Guatemala to gain a better understanding of our place in the global Catholic community. We have found so much more.

This global ministry is based on a decade-long friendship with the people of Cobán, Guatemala. Annually, pilgrims from St. Patrick's spend time at the monastery in Cobán, share faith, learn about the culture of Guatemala and distribute water filters. The Cobán Water Project purchases a simple water filtration system constructed in Guatemala City that catches rain water and purifies it. The units cost $50 and provide a family with clean water for years.
