Opening the Door for the Year of Mercy in Haiti

On Sunday, December 13, Sister Inga Borko and Sister Marilyn Minter participated in the Opening of the Year of Mercy in the Diocese of Jacmel Haiti. The celebration was during the 6th Annual Charismatic Conference for the diocese that gathered thousands of people. We sent 16 of our youth people participate in the weekend Congress. This meant we needed to purchase entrance fees that included a bracelet, t-shirt, meals and transportation. This is a big Catholic event in the Diocese of Jacmel. On Saturday evening our young people shared with us a healing that took place during the Adoration of the Holy Eucharist. A woman in a wheel chair started to walk, before everyone. We pray this event will strengthen the faith and open all to God’s mercy.

Dedication of Nursing Lab at Notre Dame University in Jacmel

On Thursday, December 10, the new nursing lab at Notre Dame University was blessed and dedicated. Sister Victoria Indyk, our Felician Sister and a professor at Madonna University, had much to do with the materials and items in the lab. The Felician Sisters also gave a donation to help make the lab a  learning facility for students.

Sister Janet Lehmen, a Sister of Christian Charity who lived with us for a year before she found her own home, is the director of the the Nursing Program. The lab was dedicated to the Sisters of Charity who paid for the construction of the room. We rejoice with Sr. Janet for this accomplishment and the future of well prepared nurses for Haiti.
