“God’s first love, the poor.” Benedict XVI

Wherever we go we meet volunteers, young and old, wanting to serve and share, as Pope Benedict XVI says: “God’s first love, the poor.” Many of these volunteers look for accommodations, a place to live for a week or longer. They need a place to pray, faith-share their experiences and have
fellowship. This kind of hospitality is needed here.

Below is a picture of a group we met from Blessed Sacrament Parish in Illinois.

St. Yves, the youngest and poorest parish in the Diocese of Jacmel

Today we met with Fr. Gaston, the pastor of St. Yves parish. It is the youngest and poorest parish in the Diocese of Jacmel. We surprised Fr. Gaston with two gifts, a chasuble and stole that was given in memory of a mother by her family, and a box of hosts. St. Yves has four missions in the mountains. You may remember one of our past blogs that we spoke about St. Yves and how the community worships in a tent. We hope to continue our relationship with Fr. Gaston and St. Yves and support them in any way we can.
