A beautiful tradition we have here in the mission is the crowning of the Blessed Mother during the month of May. On Monday, May 9, our young people preparing for the sacraments gathered to pay honor to Mary, the Mother of God!

On Sunday, May 8, a new member was added to our Felician Mission. Meet Frankey…

The power of God’s grace showers upon the Felician Haiti Mission sewing school. A new class shows us the need for such a skill as we welcome 17 participants. We had to turn people away because of lack of space and room! But this is a good thing and a good sign from God! Sr. Izzy and Sr. Julitta, together with Junior, their assistant, are doing great things as they open doors for others!
On Good Friday, it is a tradition in the city of Jacmel that all people gather to walk the Way of the Cross. We joined God’s people to share the sufferings of this world and to remember Christ’s passion and love for the world!
