This site was developed by the Greater Milwaukee Synod (ELCA) El Salvador Companion Committee and is the official web site for the relationships which the synod has with the Salvadoran Lutheran Church and Comunidad Rutilio Grande. This site was also created to serve as an ecumenical and informational resource for all who wish to deepen their relationships in El Salvador and connect with others around the world.

June Prayer Focus: We pray for the group of interfaith pastors (IPAZ) who tirelessly pray for peace, are organizing coalitions to work for peace and are taking actions to transform the hearts of people who use violence and intimidation to gain power.
