Larry Parr

Regional Director, El Salvador (and Haiti and U.S.-Mexico border)

Larry has been a Maryknoll lay missioner since 2007 and works in youth, educational, sports, and leadership and community development programs in Las Delicias, a rural community northwest of San Salvador. He works with FUDESCA, a foundation started by Las Delicias Catholic Church members, to strengthen the community through development and education. Together with local leaders, he helps young people to cultivate their leadership skills and work on projects to better the community. Larry coordinates a scholarship program for high school and university students and the Father Dean Brackley tutoring program, which prepares students from Las Delicias for studies at the University of Central America. He also coordinates Playing for Peace, a sports initiative that provides a safe haven and an alternative to the lure of gangs.
