A thread and needle give hope as sewing school is growing!

The power of God’s grace showers upon the Felician Haiti Mission sewing school. A new class shows us the need for such a skill as we welcome 17 participants. We had to turn people away because of lack of space and room! But this is a good thing and a good sign from God! Sr. Izzy and Sr. Julitta, together with Junior, their assistant, are doing great things as they open doors for others!

Walking the Way of the Cross with God’s people

On Good Friday, it is a tradition in the city of Jacmel that all people gather to walk the Way of the Cross. We joined God’s people to share the sufferings of this world and to remember Christ’s passion and love for the world!

Our kids always walk with us, too!

Walking with Jesus his last days!

During Holy Week, our new kids who are participating in our Faith Formation Program in preparation for Baptism and Communion, experienced walking with Jesus His last days.

As Jesus was approaching the slope of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of his disciples began to praise God aloud with joy for all the mighty deeds they had seen. They proclaimed:
“Blessed is the king who comes/ in the name of the Lord./Peace in heaven and glory in the highest.”
Mary took a liter of costly perfumed oil made from genuine aromatic nard and anointed the feet of Jesus and dried them with her hair; the house was filled with the fragrance of the oil. Then Judas the Iscariot, one of his disciples, and the one who would betray him, said, “Why was this oil not sold for three hundred days’ wages and given to the poor?” So Jesus said, “Leave her alone. Let her keep this for the day of my burial. You always have the poor with you, but you do not always have me.”
One of the Twelve, who was called Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests and said, “What are you willing to give me if I hand him over to you?” They paid him thirty pieces of silver, and from that time on he looked for an opportunity to hand him over.
He took a towel and tied it around his waist. Then he poured ­water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet and dry them with the towel around his waist. He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, “Master, are you going to wash my feet?” Jesus answered and said to him, “What I am doing, you do not understand now, but you will understand later.”
So when he had washed their feet and put his garments back on and reclined at table again, he said to them, “Do you realize what I have done for you? You call me ‘teacher’ and ‘master,’ and rightly so, for indeed I am. If I, therefore, the master and teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to wash one another’s feet. I have given you a model to follow, so that as I have done for you, you should also do.”
Jesus then went into the garden of Gethsemane to pray. He asked his disciples to “ stay here and keep watch with me, watch and pray!
But they all fell asleep!
Then the soldiers came and took Jesus.

The kids experienced a pilgrimage of faith walking with Jesus and his disciples. On Good Friday, they would participate in the Way of the Cross when the whole city of Jacmel walks together!

Palm Sunday

On Sunday, April 10, our doors were opened to begin Holy Week. Every year, the blessing of palms and the procession begin here with Bishop Errick Toussaint. In the Mass, we recognize that Jesus’ full glory and kingship would only come about when He was lifted up. Our greatest sorrow and shame is our great relief—the cross. Jesus’ experience of being loved and hated, of being welcomed and then rejected, provide us strength to endure the caprices and injustices of our own lives.

Welcome Dr. Jean Paul Bonnet and Hubert

On Saturday, April 9, we welcomed Dr. Jean Paul Bonnet and Hubert to the Felician Haiti Mission. We were so happy to see them and to show the progress of the bakery and the wells that Dr. Bonnet has donated to the Mission, the school, and Cayes Jacmel. He had a busy schedule for the two days they were with us.

We first had a business meeting to share our business plan, as well as the budget. Then it was time for a visit to the bakery site to see the progress.

Dr. Bonnet, Hubert and Fr. Bertrand

In the late afternoon, we met with Bishop Erick Glandas, Fr. Bertrand, and Fr. Maurice (who lives on the property where the bakery will be).

The next day, we met again to write the Mission, Vision and Values statements, as well as to work on the budget. After dinner, we went back to the bakery site to do some measuring of doors and windows in order to be sure equipment could pass through doors. We also checked where to place showcases and shelves for bread.

Stations of the Cross

Every Friday during Lent, we try to have our children and youth experience the Way of the Cross, using different media and reflections. We took the pictures the young kids had made and turned them into photos. We then found photos from the situations in Ukraine and in Haiti, using them to pray for both countries in war and insecurities.

We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you; because by your holy cross, you are redeeming the world!
