Through your generous support of the year-round
"Change for Haiti" table-top fundraiser, $15,825.28 has
come in since January 19, 2009. Small change in our pockets makes a
big difference in the lives of St. Jude school children, their families
and the elderly. Mesi
Anpil. Mesi Anpil.
How can you participate?
- Pick up your Change for Haiti can by the entrances to the church.
- When your can is full, return it to the basket at the foot
of the St. Jude statue in the Upper Church.
- Then ask an usher for a new Change for Haiti can any Sunday.
Gesu parishioners have been very generous to our sisters and brothers
of St. Jude, Mon Opital, Haiti since our parishes became twinning
partners in 2002:
Mesi Anpil, Mesi Anpil, Mesi Anpil, Mesi Anpil, Mesi Anpil!
- providing school lunches at St. Paul School for 400
- initiating a program to distribute food to the elderly
- building a cistern to provide safe drinking water during
the dry season.
