The Haiti Ministry is pleased to announce that in addition to the existing partnership with the ServeHAITI organization, it has entered into a new twinning agreement with the Sang Precieux de Jesus (Precious Blood of Jesus), in Potino, Haiti. In keeping with Lourdes Haiti ministry’s commitment to education, the Our lady of Lourdes’ Haiti Ministry will focus on providing support to the Ecole Presbyteral de Precieux Sang De Jesus. The school is tied to and physically right next to the parish. The agreement includes financial support to pay the teachers, purchase textbooks and other teaching or student supplies, building repairs, and satellite internet connection at the parish. Also, when safe to travel to Haiti again, OLL Haiti ministry members will travel to Potino to meet and work with the church community and the students in various community projects in conjunction with ServeHaiti, whose health center is located in Grand Bois, a neighboring town of Potino. Possible collaboration with ServeHaiti’s initiatives is with programs regarding Health, Water, Education, and Economic Development. Lourdes Haiti ministry invites all interested parishioners to join us for our meetings which will be held virtually at times or on the third Sunday of the month to learn more about the work we will be doing with the Sang Precieux De Jesus church and school in Potino, and in Grand Bois in conjunction with Serve HAITI. We would also like to thank the congregation for the continued financial support and for honoring God’s goodness by sharing your blessings with others.
