Here you will find many best practice materials, spiritual development resources to prepare for mission, a long list of mission collaborators ready to assist you in your twinning mission, a discussion forum to ask questions and get answers from other parish twins, maps of twinning parishes in the U.S. and Haiti, and much more. We will give a thorough demonstration of the many functions and resources found on the portal, invite your input for additions for the future and answer your questions about how the portal can support and enhance your parish twinning relationship.
