Parroquia La Sagrada Familia (Sabana Yegua, Dominican Republic)Fr Juan Celebrating Mass

La Sagrada Familia (Holy Family) is the Archdiocese of Milwaukee's Sister Parish in the Dominican Republic. It has been the missionary outreach of our archdiocese since 1981!

The parish is located in the province of Azua, in the southwest region of the Dominican Republic. It serves 30,000 people living in 22 towns and villages. Sabana Yegua is the largest town, with a population of approximately 10,000. The parish center, with its main church, offices and parish hall, is located there.

To attend to the many needs of the parish, two priests from the Archdiocese of Milwaukee work with a pastoral staff and dozens of volunteers from the region (all of whom are native to the Dominican Republic).

In addition to nurturing the spiritual needs of the parish through evangelization, catechesis, the celebration of the sacraments in every village, prayer groups, adult and youth formation and leadership training, the priests and the staff strive to address the various material needs of parishioners. Endemic poverty, lack of proper health care, insufficient educational opportunities and inadequate housing are only some of the challenges facing our parishioners in La Sagrada Familia.
