Guatemala visit

the Inland Register

(From the Jan. 17, 2008 edition of the Inland Register)

Father John Birk (right), a retired priest of the Spokane Diocese, paid a visit to Guatemala last year to catch up with Benedictine Father Juan Francisco Peren (center), whom Father Birk had helped support during seminary formation. Also pictured (at left) is Benedictine Abbot John Brahill. The three are pictured in front of the convent in Novillero, one of the Guatemala towns where the Spokane Dioceseís mission work takes place. Father Birk traveled with five other Eastern Washington parishioners, who helped with maintenance and painting in some of the missionís sites. (IR photo from Father John Birk)
