On Friday, November 23, members of the Parisot Foundation arrived. They will be using the volunteer house for accommodations during their 5 day visit.
The Parisot Foundation is named in honor of Fr. Parisot who was a priest in Jacmel for many years. He was highly sought after to be a Bishop but never wanted to leave his people. He traveled on a horse to all the places he visited. He was truly an apostle of Christ.
Fr. Jean Pierre who is a Haitian priest who works in the Archdiocese of Boston, began this foundation in his honor to develop a vocational school in Jacmel. The people from the board of this foundation have come to see the progress of the building of the new school. They are very please with the progress thus far.
Fr. Jean Pierre celebrated Mass for us on Saturday.
