The Caribbean nation of Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Since the 2010 Haitian earthquakes, much has been raised for relief efforts—but there’s still much to do. So far, our St. John’s community has helped raise money to add on to the school and provide clean water for the people in Bassin-Bleu and Mole, Haiti. Our mission to Haiti still continues today and we need your help!
St. John’s has have formed a sister parish in Mole, Haiti, located located in the Northwest corner of the nation. Fr. Rodolphe, who studied theology at St. Meinrad Seminary in southern Indiana (with Fr Nagel), is the pastor at the parish in Mole. Our missionaries go there to build relationships with the people of that community and discover how we can all help. Recently a team went down to help install a water purification system so that those living in this village may have access to clean water. Please consider how your prayers and dollars can aid the beautiful people of this impoverished nation.
