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.

Hey! We’re back!

The group that went to Haiti on February 17th has returned. What a trip it was! All went very well including our interactions with the Haitian people. It was a pleasure to see our sisters and brothers of St. Genevieve in Zoranje. We will continue to share exper-iences at all Masses on the weekend of the Taste of Haiti where you will have a chance to meet Fr. Philippe.

Remember that this year Taste of Haiti will be held on Saturday, May 31st. Members of the Sister Parish Committee are already making plans for this event. We welcome your ideas. All who would like to volunteer for the Taste of Haiti, please call the office (860-756-4034) to leave your name and phone number, and someone will get back to you. Thank you!

Thank you for your support and prayers while we were in Haiti and may the Lord reward you for your generosity.
