Last year, we had our first Baptism and Holy Communion class at the Mission. We wanted the kids to remember the joy of that day and experience. On Saturday, July 17, we were blessed to celebrate the 16th Sunday of Ordinary Time at 5 p.m. with Fr. Emmanuel.
Sisters Izzy and Julitta washed and ironed the Communion outfits from last year. The kids certainly felt very special once again. These are very difficult times here in Haiti, and the children need to keep their souls and minds on our God who is with them in the midst of suffering.
After Mass, everyone received chicken, bread, and soda.
