Community Outreach: Our Partners
St. Genevieve – Haiti
St. Patrick-St. Anthony Church has been in a covenant relationship with St. Genevieve Church (Zoranje, Haiti) since 2005 to build a bridge between our churches and to provide financial support for St. Genevieve's parish and school. The Sister Parish Committee coordinates activities for our parish. Each year, a team of our parishioners visits St. Genevieve to get to know the members of our sister parish. Regular events help make parishioners of St. Patrick-St. Anthony aware of the rich cultural and spiritual traditions of the people of Haiti. This relationship deepens our understanding of what it means to live in a global Church and to foster justice, human dignity, and respect for people from different cultures.
