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.

Our travelers have arrived home safely. There is much to share so keep watching for information over the upcoming weeks. Plans are already being made for the next trip in early 2015.

There is good news from St. Genevieve relating to today's proverb. The engineering firm has been chosen to rebuild the church. Construction is expected to begin next month. It has been a long process and even baby steps are encouraging.

The next meeting of the Sister Parish Committee is on Monday, October 20, at 6:30 in the Franciscan Center.

Peace and All Good.
