Fr. Murat, the pastor of our sister parish in Verrettes, Haiti describes the new multipurpose building he is hoping to building at our sister school. Over the years we have been supporting the feeding program, which supports 220 students with daily meals, as well as helping support the teacher's salaries. Now, we're hoping to expand our impact by helping Fr. Murat construct a new multipurpose building for the students, teachers, and parents to use. Please support our work!
