St. Claire Church, Dessalines, Haiti
For many years the Archdiocese of Baltimore has participated in a partner diocese relationship with the Diocese of Gonaives, Haiti. As part of that partnership, St. Ann Church has enjoyed a long-standing partner-parish relationship with St. Claire Parish in the area of Dessalines, Haiti - part of the Diocese of Gonaives. As circumstances allow, the Pastor of St.Claire Parish makes an annual pastoral visit to St. Ann Church and parishioners from St. Ann Church have made mission trips to visit and serve St. Claire Parish. Our most significant expression of support is our annul "Littlest Angels" campaign that provides a hot meal each day of the school year for nearly 900 students at the parish school - often the only good meal they may have each day.
