New Year’s Day, Mary Mother of God, and World Day of Peace

On Sunday, January 1, 2017,  we celebrated the New Year’s Day Mass with Sr. Victoria and the Madonna University volunteers by attending a special Mass at the Community Center in Jacmel. It is not only a great day for Mary, the Mother of God, and World Day of Peace, but a day of remembrance for the Haitian people who fought for their freedom from slavery. 

After the Mass, we went to visit the construction site for our new convent and volunteer house. We were blessed with a beautiful ritual and blessing that Sr. Victoria had brought with her from Livonia, Michigan. Sister Victoria said: “The 12 Miraculous Medals that we used in our special service were touched to a tube of blood from St. Pope John Paul II. The mission to place the medals in all countries was given to Mother Adelanto, SCTJM, in Pompeii, Italy. I am so happy that we were able to do this today for protection of our Felician Mission, as well as for the people of Haiti.” We placed a small Miraculous Mary Medal in all the sites of construction.

Madonna University Volunteers give filters and buckets for clean water!💦💧

On Thursday, December 28, and Friday, December 29, the Madonna University volunteers helped to prepare buckets and filters for our “Water with Blessing” Program. Over 100 filters and buckets had been purchased to give clean drinking water to families throughout our area. During these two days, we had the formation program for 34 women. We are so grateful for all those who donated in order to provide clean water for the people of Jacmel in our area.
