Guest in the House, God in the House

The Felician Haiti Mission has a full house, with visitors from the Dominican Republic and Michigan. For the past few weeks, we have had members of the Neocatechemenal Way with us, while they are having catechesis at St. Michael’s parish.

On Friday, June 7, Dr. Zbigniew Purzycki, MD; his wife, Małgorzata; their daughter Katerina (a future medical student); and their family friend, Emily, who is also a medical student. They have been having a clinic here with our neighbors and, of course, with our children.

Saturday, they unpacked many suitcases with over-the-counter medicines. After that, we took them to where our children live; and we invited folks to visit the clinic on Monday.

Sunday, there were demonstrations in Jacmel, so we could not leave the mission. However, we used our time wisely by preparing medications for Monday’s clinic.

On Monday, adults from around the neighborhood came for the clinic. Sr. Marilyn translated for the doctor and his patients.

Tuesday was clinic day for mothers and babies.

Thank God, Dr. Wanitha was with us because we saw about 50 babies and mothers.

Katerina and Emily have also been going with the Mother Angela Clinic to get some rural nursing and health experience.

Doing some outdoor re-modeling on the grounds with some talented volunteers!

During the week of May 27, we wanted to do some re-modeling of our grounds. Since we have some guests with us from the Neocatechemenal Way, they volunteered to help us make two pathways–one to Our Mary shrine and the other to the activity center. Fr. Alan (originally from the Ivory Coast) and Eddy (from the Dominican Republic) are both Catechists from the Way; Jean Philip, the young man who lives on our grounds and works with us, and John, our gardener, all worked hard to make our mission a place of prayerful welcome.

The joy of the Lord is our strength!

Yes, indeed, the joy of the Lord is our strength; and He is our help at all times. Every week, our kids come and do their homework. After they eat, it is time for some fun. Some days we have special fun educational activities that build up team work and leadership.

A big thanks to all of you and your donations of games.

May Crowning

On Saturday, May 11, we had our May Crowning with the Faith Formation classes. The day was sunny and, of course, hot but a beautiful day for Our Lady. The way we chose the crowner was to see who had a birthday in May. Julianna raised her hand in excitement. Julianna is a little girl who has been cross-eyed since birth. She actually sees double. This does not stop her from doing anything. We knew this had to be a first-time event for her. The children prepared their song, “Ave Maria” to sing during the Crowning. The procession began with delight.

When Julianna crowned Our Lady, she was so holy and beautiful that it looked as if Mary was speaking to her heart.

These are small joys that say to us: “It is good for us to be here.” Mt. 17:4

Our Lady of Perpetual Help, pray for us!
