The Haiti Project
This coming April break, a team of 20, including both students and faculty, will be participating in an international service immersion trip to Haiti. One of the poorest countries in the world, Haiti has been plagued by illness and natural disasters. Participants will witness and serve some of the most extreme poverty existing on this planet, serving Haitians through the Lifeteen Mission Trips
. The team will leave on Monday, April 17
and return Monday, April 24
. Our primary work with Lifeteen Missions will be on the mission base at the Saint John Paul II Center for New Evangelization. The crew will be doing work projects like painting, organizing, making bags to deliver to Haitian homes, building, sweeping, etc. Off base, the group will do a variety of other service activities from visiting the monastery and connecting orphanage, to visiting and talking with prisoners, to traveling to Azil a center where the poorest of the poor lives (mostly due to disabilities). We are excited to undertake this important ministry!
For this project, each day, students will learn about the grim statistics on education, poverty, and unemployment in Haiti. Each day, members of our community will have an opportunity to pray for and support our dear neighbors in Haiti through their contributions.
In addition to the campaign we are sharing every day during daily announcements, the group will be hosting two fundraisers. Click each link below for more details.
