Our thanks go out to the representatives of our diocesan mission project, Outreach to Haiti who spoke at Masses last Sunday. At our parish, we collected $1,042.75 to support their mission. Many thanks for your generous response.
The principal goal of the Outreach to Haiti presentations, however, was not a collection. Much more important is the deepening of our awareness of Haiti and of our relationship to the Haitian people. At 3pm in the afternoon this Sunday, at Sts Peter and Paul Church hall, we will hold a followup conference about Haiti. Our conversation will be led by people from Haiti and people from here who have found they cannot ignore the needs of Haiti. Come to our afternoon conference. If you do, you may not see the world or our mission to the world quite the same way again.
