St. Joseph Family Homes: Haiti Outreach Ministry and St. Frances Cabrini Celebrate 25 Years of Partnership
Since 1989, St. Frances Cabrini Parish in West Bend has had a twinning relationship with Haiti, the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.
This year, St. Frances Cabrini celebrates the 25th anniversary of their twinning relationship.
From a recent parish publication, St. Frances Cabrini says in those 25 years:
"37 Cabrini team members have traveled to the mission fields in Haiti. Seventeen of those parishioners traveled there multiple times.
717 duffels bags, weighing in excess of 50,000 pounds were sent with the teams, filled with clothing, shoes, crocheted tote bags, school backpacks, handmade quilts, bibles, dictionaries, and much more.
200 Haitian children and elderly were sponsored @ $30 per month for ten years by Cabrini families.
3 - forty foot-long containers were sent across the Atlantic Ocean to Haiti, filled with furniture, filing cabinets, desks, tables, ladders, bikes, water buckets, and non-perishable food."
In the coming months, St. Frances Cabrini will be sending out more information about a new fundraising project and about its many efforts in Haiti, including the planned Haiti Outreach Center.
