Happy Feast of St. Joseph

Monday, March 19, the Feast of St. Joseph, brought the children to us. It was our first time having the Mother Angela Kitchen in our new mission complex. When the kids entered, they were in awe and saw that God lives in this place. We also had some very poor women come to our door with a child, who was very hungry. All was gift through the intercession of St. Joseph, our protector and guide, in obedience to the Will of the Father.

Where I AM, my servants will be…John 12:26

“Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there also will my servant be. The Father will honor whoever serves me.” The words of today’s Gospel speak so loudly on the holy ground of Haiti, here in our new mission complex. We had the help of so many as we were getting things ready, setting up, and putting away what we had stored in boxes. There are so many who are with us and who helped us. We see JESUS in them as they serve in Jesus’ name.

We thank God for the gift of Mike Edgar, who spent six weeks with us, helping us with the move and seeing to the completion of the construction. We ask God’s blessings on Eric Moyer, who gave of his time and talent to help us with the transition. And we are grateful to JetBlue for donating computers for the computer lab. We pray that the Father of all blessings will fill you and your families in good measure and flowing over.

Meet FELIX, our cat!

When we moved into our new home at our new mission complex, we were very busy unpacking boxes for the convent, activity center, volunteer house, Mother Angela Clinic Pharmacy, and computer lab. This has taken several weeks; but, finally, we think that most everything is in place. We still have some construction workers here, but we will soon be able to have all the kids again.

In the meantime, everyday we noticed that a cat was hanging around. He would follow us everywhere we went. So, as good Felician Sisters, we named him FELIX. We speak to Felix in Creole and, believe it or not, he responds. He loves to sleep everywhere he can. Yes, he even catches mice. (Whenever you have construction, it seems to stir up the mice population.) We have never been cat lovers, but this little guy wants to be a part of our community. He is not allowed inside the houses, although there are times he sneaks inside. Felix is slowly but surely learning the rules. We are not feeding him, so maybe he is catching our mice and bugs…

When I was sick, you visited me. Mt. 25:36

During the week of March 5-9, students from Madonna University and Felician University volunteered their time and talents with us. One of those ways was visiting the homes of our sick people who cannot afford to see a doctor and obtain the needed medication. These home visits always seem to be the heart of the mission experience because the volunteers get to know the family life of our children and their extended families. We are so proud of the way each of our Felician-sponsored institutions have placed in the hearts of their students the Felician core values of being “Grounded in the fundamental beliefs of respect for human dignity, compassion, transformation, solidarity with the poor, justice and peace, reverence, diversity, service, and joy…”

Being a RESPONSE TO LOVE

Felician University nursing students, together with their professor, Dr. Kathy Vito, have been experiencing the mission of the Mother Angela clinic. When they return each day, there is always a call to respond to a medical need. We are really seeing the core values of the Felician Mission in them.
