Celebrating St. Felix Day and Flag Day Part 1

The JOY of the Lord is our strength. And the joy of the Lord was here in the Felician Haiti Mission on Wednesday, May 18.

It has been a yearly tradition that we celebrate the feast of St. Felix with our kids. We pray, tell his story, and sing a song that Felix may have sung while he was walking the streets with the children of his time.

Annette shares the story of St. Felix.
Singing: Jesus, Jesus take my heart!
During the singing, Sr. Inga anointed each child with blessed oil from St. Felix Church, Rome, Italy.

After the prayer service, we raised the flag of Haiti . The children were given a short explanation about why we honor and respect the flag.

Edwina gave a short history of the Haitian flag.
After the program, all ate a delicious chicken, rice and salad dinner! Delicious cupcakes were baked by Sisters Julitta and Izzy.
