Our Haitian Promise
The community of St. Josephine Bakhita parish began twinning with the parish of Saint Anne in Saintard, Haiti in March, 2001.
Saint Anne Church, established in 1958, is a parish of over 3000 people, located on the coast just north of Port-au-Prince.
The church is in a beautiful area adjacent to banana and plantain groves.
Our commitment of $1000 a month is primarily used to buy food for the house,
maintenance and upkeep to the church and parish car and to pay employees of the church and rectory.
There still is an overwhelming need to raise money in order to construct, supply and support a school for the community.
Empowered by God’s Spirit, the Community of
Saint Josephine Bakhita in Rocky Hill, CT
covenants with the parish family of Saint Anne in Saintard, Haiti
in the mutual support through prayer, cultural exchange, social action, resource assistance
and promises to support “Outreach to Haiti” in Norwich, CT in it's continuing commitment to the people of Haiti.
