- Participate in the Share the Journey Campaign by planning a pilgrimage in your community during National Pilgrimage Month (October 13-November 13). Follow this link for more information and event resources.
CRS on the Ground
Guatemala experienced a devastating volcanic eruption on Sunday, June 3rd. The eruption has impacted several communities in Chimaltenango, Escuintla and Sacatepéquez, damaging infrastructure and affecting more than 1.7 million people. Currently more than 3,000 people have been evacuated with nearly 1,700 people needing shelter.
CRS is working with Caritas Escuintla to assess immediate needs across the affected communities. Caritas has opened a collection center for water, food and medicine, and the Catholic Church has opened three shelters in the area.
