My wife and I and a small group from our parish are leaving for Cap-Haitien
tomorrow. We will be working with the Missionaries of the Poor
in Northern Haiti. This is the first time we have worked outside of Port Au Prince and we are looking forward to this new experience. The brothers there run a home for disabled children as well as a home/hospice for the elderly and a food distribution ministry. We are not sure yet where they will have us work us but we look forward to spending a week participating in their spiritual life, daily Mass, praying the Liturgy of the Hours with them and especially serving Jesus in the poor.
A bonus is that Lent begins this upcoming week and we are thankful to the Lord to be able to spend the first week in Haiti. As always, I ask my faithful readers to keep us and the people of Haiti in your prayers, and perhaps offer up your fast on Ash Wednesday for us. Thanks so much!
