Haiti Sister Parish – Connected for Christ

Connected For Christ

 We officially started a twinning relationship with our sister parish in Manquette, Haiti in November of 2020. By the end of the December 2020 we were able to transfer $4,000 to the parish! Your generosity is amazing. Thank you all so much. The funds we have sent are being used for general parish needs, such as AV equipment, liturgical objects for Mass, chairs for the sanctuary, supplies for their Christmas Mass, pastoral formation days for parish youth and choir, rectory bills, charitable needs of parishioners, and more. Again, thank you so much! Please keep our sister parish Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception in your prayers.

First Communion 2022
Our 2022 Precious Blood First Communicants all signed a cloth picture of our Sister Parish. It was mailed to them and they hung it for their First Communion Mass held on Sunday, May 22, 2022.


Calvary and Bethany
A day of blessing and prayer. Our sister parish has been hard at work over the past couple of months building a pryaer and pilgimage site just outside of town. Calvary and Bethany is complete. The Bishop came to celebrate and bless the site. Calvary at Bethany will serve not only as a site of prayer but in the long rum willhelp our sister parish become more self-supporting, as this site will draw pilgrims from the Dominican Republic. Religious articles will be able to be sold at the site in the future.

Lenten Prayer Offering
This year for Lent we would like to offer up prayers and Lenten sacrifices for the parishioners of our sister parish of Our Lady of the Immaculate
Conception. We are creating a “Spiritual Bouquet” of our offerings. In the weeks leading up to Lent there will be a table in the gathering area
with supplies to create our bouquet. Please write your prayers/offerings on the paper flower cut outs and place in the basket provided. Examples
of offerings include daily prayer, rosaries, novenas, and offering up your
Lenten sacrifice etc. You can also send us your prayer offerings via message
on our Facebook (Connected For Christ) or Instagram (connected4christ)
pages.
Mass Intentions Need a last minute Christmas gift idea? How about having a Mass said for your loved one at our sister parish in Haiti. Cards are available in the gathering area by the bulletin board. We are asking a $10.00 donation for our sister parish be placed in the marked envelope and taken to the Parish office or put in the regular collection basket.
Haiti Collection Boxes
We have started our monthly collection for our sister parish in Haiti. The first weekend of each month is when the boxes will be out by the doors going into church.
Any donation is greatly appreciated!
