Haiti Appeal: Focus on the Future
The work of The Episcopal Church in Haiti is primarily focused now on rebuilding the diocesan infrastructure -- buildings and programs -- destroyed in Haiti in the January 2010 earthquake. The buildings are meeting spaces that will serve their communities' spiritual and temporal needs - leading toward a sustainable future in Haiti. The Bishop of Haiti, the Rev. Jean-Zache Duracin, and his people, asked for the support of the entire Episcopal Church to help rebuild the Cathedral in Port-au-Prince and indeed the entire church infrastructure destroyed in the earthquake. These facilities include churches, diocesan-run schools, clinics and hospitals.
So many have given generously in support of the needs of the Diocese of Haiti. You can read more about the range of the projects at Haiti: More Than a Cathedral. The following provides in more detail about select projects. These projects are, in the words of the Presiding Bishop, "representative of the best of the ministry of The Episcopal Church." They are doing much to transform lives in Haiti, and will help create an even brighter future for the Haitian community.
Your continuing financial gifts are making these projects possible:
