Hand in Hand with Haiti
Walking Hand in Hand with Our Catholic Brothers and Sisters in Beau Sejour, Haiti
In 2008, Holy Family parish joined with St. Gabriel parish, a community of 22,000 people in the mountains of Haiti, to develop a relationship of sharing, solidarity, prayer and understanding. In the short time since our parish twinning partnership began, a strong bond has been created with the faith-filled people from this small community but their faith overflows!
Our Mission Statement
To work with St. Gabriel in building a healthier and self-sustaining community and help our parishes grow in the spirit of thankfulness and humility which is evident in the people of St. Gabriel.

A Message from our sister Parish in Haiti Saint Gabriel's:
People from Beausejour and Lacrete asked me to thank you and express their deepest Gratitude to all people who thought of them during this difficult time. Your help is relief a true relief. They are speechless for your great contribution. Right now, their children eat everyday good food. If before, eating was a difficult matter, now, it is very easy to them. Some students who left school, had returned. Thanks be to t...he Food Program. Because of you, dear friends. We do hope next year, Saint Gabriel will welcome a significant number of children, because the Food Program. I pray that we will be able to keep it.
In Haiti, there is no Education without Food.
Thank you so much!
