Minnesota Cuban Ministries
Following the open-hearted spirit of Bishop Whipple, the faith communities of the Episcopal Church of Minnesota seeks to expand its intercambio with the Episcopal faith communities in Cuba through mission trips as well as regular contact between bishops.

The faith communities minister to each other in a spirit of mutual love, friendship, and support as well as open the doors of communication, fellowship, and reconciliation as acts of faith. 

Our ministry meets monthly and would love for you to join us in fostering this growing connection to support Cuban Episcopalians as well as help others better understand our mutual faith journey. Contact Veronica Guevara to learn more.

Check out the new Cuban Episcopal website-- Lot's of photos and information about all the ongoing projects and opportunities for companionship relationships.

2013/2014 MISSION TRIP: Havana and Itabo, Cuba.

We made a mission trip to Havana and Itabo, Cuba. Bishop Griselda Delgado del Carpio's has a vision for growth in Sustainable Development gardening projects, The Encampamento Blankinship Youth Camp, and on-going building and refurbishment projects at the Episcopal Cathedral in Havana, as well as diocesan training for Cuban clergy and lay ministers. All the Cubans we met on this most recent trip told us that they would pray for us— We have so much to learn from them about faith and community.

Our support of Cuba is vital to the health of our Cuban sisters and brothers, and is greatly appreciated.  Cash donations to the Minnesota Cuba Ministry Fund (made out to St. Mark's, Cuban Ministry Fund) would also help with this vision for growth.
