A group of 17 parishioners from St. Ambrose of Woodbury visited the church's Sister Parish Jan. 2-9 in Esmeralda, Camaguey, Cuba.

It was the third trip to Cuba and the largest group yet.

Parishioners experienced a youth group Nativity skit along with Cuban singing and dancing.

The group also spent time visiting with the sick, helping tear down a hurricane-damaged church building and playing baseball with teens and university students home for the holidays.
