On Thursday, February 5, Mark and Mike met us at Bishop Saturne’s residence for a meeting with the bishop and the members of PROCHE, an organization that has been helping to rebuild Catholic churches and schools in Haiti. PROCHE has been involved in our plans for building the new convent. It was the day for finalizing the purchase of the land from the Diocese of Jacmel. As you know, we have been living on the second floor of a diocesan-owned building, sharing space with priests from the Order of St. Vincent de Paul, as well as the diocesan radio station and the Catholic Schools Office.
It was a full, intense day of meetings and seeing the land. It was a short visit by Mark and Mike, but much was accomplished.
