Sr. Izzy and Rosemarie are working together to give Mary a new refreshing look!
On Sunday, February 27, our faith community went to see the construction site for the new Felician Bakery. It is an amazing grace to see work being done during such difficult times in the country. God has a plan and wants us to give bread to His people.
On Saturday, February 26, seven young men from the Diocese of Jacmel were ordained transitional Deacons. The priests and choir gathered here in the Felician Mission for the procession. After Mass, many gathered here for the reception.
On Friday, February 25, Sr. Inga (Director of Faith Formation for Mission Haiti) and Sr. Julitta met with the children, ages 5-7, for their first faith formation class. Sr. Julitta will be assisted by Janika, one of our teens.
On Friday, February 25, over 80 children were waiting at our door for movie night!
The gate opened at 4 p.m., and our youth group who assist us were ready. The children come in 2 by 2 and are taken to a seat. It is almost like a movie theatre. Popcorn and chocolate were prepared, and there was clean water to drink!
It was a lot of popcorn and chocolate today!!!!!

On Tuesday, February 22, Sisters Julitta and Marilyn accompanied the Mother Angela Clinic to Lavout. Lavout is way up in the mountains, and it takes about an hour to get there through difficult roads. The people there get to see a doctor once a month. They also travel by foot long distances to get to the clinic. Here in Lavout, many people have high blood pressure!
Because of you, we can bring good medical assistance to many children, women and men.

On Monday, February 21, Bishop Marie Erick Glandas Toussaint and Synod committee members met at the Felician Mission to work on their report. We were happy to give hospitality and be a part of this important time in the life of the Church
An amazing grace for us is to watch our young people learn English from volunteers and a professional teacher. Some are learning for their own enrichment, and others are learning to continue their higher education with Madonna University in the future. This is a commitment on their part, as well as the volunteers from all over the USA, headed by Caroline Stanfill, director of volunteers for the Felician Sisters of North America. See some of these students below…
