La Sagrada Familia
For the past 40 years, the Archdiocese of Milwaukee in conjunction with the Office for World Mission has been United at the Heart in Faith and Action with La Sagrada Familia Parish in Sabana Yegua, Dominican Republic.
Holy Apostles has been a sister parish of La Sagrada Familia for over 10 years, with a special focus on outreach to the Haitian Population. Through the years, our parish has assisted in fund raising for many building improvement projects, a large water reservoir project, and supported several additional ministries in the area including elderly outreach and nutrition centers. Our parishioners travel yearly to Sabana Yegua to show our support and build relationships with the many people we serve. Our ministry has been able to offer medical and dental clinics for the community which have been especially well received in areas without access to local healthcare services.
