From January 19 – February 3, we were busy about the Felician Haiti mission in NJ and PA. We were invited to Most Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish in Wallington, NJ, for their Saturday and Sunday Masses, to share our journey of evangelization of presence in Haiti. Since it was Catholic Schools Week, we also visited Most Sacred Heart of Jesus grammar school.
The primary reason we had come to the States was to participate in the Haiti Mission Orientation III meeting with members of the council and the support group of the Haiti mission. The meeting, held at the central convent in Coraopolis, PA, was needed for making some important decisions; it very fruitful.
We also had the opportunity to meet with some of our Felician Associates and others who are interested in supporting the Felician Mission in Haiti.
We met with members of Felician College faculty to discuss the volunteer program in Haiti and to begin plans for another mission experience in Jacmel. We had appointments with three other parishes: St. Patrick’s, Jersey City, NJ, whose medical mission team will be coming in March; St. Gabriel’s, Saddle River, NJ, whose parish involvement has them twinning with the mission at St. Yves; and Our Lady Queen of Peace, Maywood, NJ, whom we thanked for their donation of school supplies which had been sent to us last month.
As you can see, it was a full two weeks…always on mission. 😊
