“What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds?” James 2:14
The St. Ann Haiti Outreach provides parishioners of St. Ann in Hagerstown and St. Claire in Dessalines, Haiti an opportunity to experience the Universal Church and serve one another as brothers and sisters in faith.
Why an Outreach to Haiti?
The Archdiocese of Baltimore is partnered with the Diocese of Gonaives in Haiti. Over twenty parishes in the Archdiocese of Baltimore are partnered with parishes in the Diocese of Gonaives. St. Ann parish has been one of those parishes for over 15 years. These partnerships feed thousands of malnourished school children and help Haitian communities “help themselves”. Both parishes benefit from the exchange.
