Even the remote village of St. Michel has been impacted by COVID-19. Be sure to read the latest Haiti News, published May 2020, below (click image to enlarge).


With the beginning of the Archdiocesan Haiti Outreach Project, there came an opportunity for local parishes to enter into a specific relationship with a sister parish and to offer spiritual and material help. St. John’s has been involved with partner parishes to provide financial support, emergency hurricane relief, and subsidized education of the 1,000 school children in four schools, as well as providing a morning meal five times per week for all of these children.

“Today is the Feast of Saint Blaise. We celebrated a Mass with the pupils, the teachers and the parents. After the Mass we made a small reception. In the afternoon there was a nice football game. It was really interesting. Let me tell you that all this has been achieved thanks to your support. I don’t cease to thank you for so many benefits to the children of the parish of Saint Michel de L’Attalaye.”
