On Saturday, February 2, we joined the Universal Church in celebrating Consecrated Life Day. All religious brothers and sisters who serve in the Diocese of Jacmel gathered in the Pastoral Center with Bishop Launay Saturne and many of his priests. The meeting included a conference, sharing with other communities, and dinner. The day concluded with the Celebration of the Eucharist.
Sister Inga met a Sister of St. Vincent de Paul who is from Poland and has been serving in Haiti for 10 years. It is a very small world because Sister Lila’s brother is a priest who has been serving in Sister Inga’s home parish in Sulecin, Poland. When he heard that Sister Inga was missioned in Haiti, the connection began. Sister Lila serves in the same Diocese and works in the mountains about two hours away from Jacmel. She speaks Creole fluently.
