Today, April 30, the Diocese of Jacmel celebrates with great joy as they blessed and broke ground for the new Cathedral. The USCCB (United States Catholic Conference of Bishops) is providing the funds to assist in this building project. Archbishop Thomas Wenski, Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Miami; his Chancellor, Sr. Elizabeth Ann Worley, SSJ; and representatives from the USCCB were present. Archbishop Bernadito Auza, Papal Nuncio for Haiti, and Bishop Joseph Lafontant were also present. The building project is hoped to be completed in eight months. Today we realized that the new cathedral will be right around the corner from where our new convent will be built. As we walked home, a police car stopped and offered us a ride. This was a first for us–to be in a police car in Haiti.
Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Ps. 127
