To all our friends of FHRA, greetings from Guatemala.

I have some good news to share.


We thank God for our new ecclesiastical authority after the death of our beloved Metropolitan Antonio Chedraoui.

We are now under the omophorion of Metropolitan Archbishop Amfilohije Radović of the Serbian Patriarchate. His Eminence, the Right Reverend Amfilohije is the Serbian Metropolitan of Montenegro with jurisdictions in South and Central America. It is a great joy and blessing!


We continue working for the needy children and youth in “Hogar Rafael Ayau," and we returned back to its original name of “House of Mercy” given by Don Rafael Ayau in 1856. For more information on the many activities and works of mercy taking place here, visit the website: www.casadeculturaymisericordiarafaleayau.org   We also continue with the children that have grown with us and now are all teenagers, plus the ones who are in college.

Third:  We announce that our Metropolitan will be visiting us from December 4-8, 2017.  

We have sent out invitations in Guatemala. (click on the link for a clear copy)

Translation of the Invitation

The Metropolitan Archbishop, the Right Reverend Amfilohije Radović,

We ask God to abundantly bless each one of you and your families.
