Cloister Art Gallery

Current Gallery Exhibit
House of Hope youth went on a mission trip to La Fragua, Zacapa, Guatemala in July 2018. We stayed at an orphanage called Casa De Esperanza, which means House of Hope in Spanish. This orphanage partners with ministers to many nearby villages, one of which we drove 23 miles in the height of the mountain jungle to reach. The youth spent time in these villages, with children and adults at the orphanage, and also a day in Antigua near El Fuego, the volcano that erupted in June. The photos on display represent stories from the trip; many more can be told by the youth and adults who experienced it.
