On Friday, March 18, the Mother Angela Clinic team celebrated their 8th anniversary. However, the dream and planning actually began 9 years ago with the help of SM Giovanni Monge, who at the time was President of Angela Hospice. With her guidance and our faith that this could happen, eight years later we celebrate with joy all that the clinic has done and continues to do in the Diocese of Jacmel. With the help of many benefactors, especially Marybeth and Gavin O’Connor, we now visit 28 chapels in places where people are in most need of health care.
Fr. Bertrand, director of Caritas for the Diocese of Jacmel celebrated the Mass. After Mass everyone enjoyed a PowerPoint, created by Sisters Izzy and Marilyn, that took us through the years of remembering. Sisters Inga and Julitta made delicious cakes and quiche that all enjoyed after the Mass!
