Recently the Cathedral wired $6,000 to Cathedral St Louis, our Sister Parish in Jeremie, Haiti. Funds used for the lunch program at St Therese School. Here is the thank you email Jack Lydon received, on January 25, 2021.
Subject: Thank you of the St Therese School for the lunch Program
Mr Jack Lydon,
I have a great pleasure to answer your mail. It is up to me to thank you for this help so precious in these difficult times that the world is going through. In Haiti, the socio-political and economic situation is very hard for the citizens, especially for the children. The latter are often victims of kidnappings by armed individuals. Their release depends on the ability of their parents and relatives to pay exorbitant ransoms. Children like adults live in fear. We have the feeling of being handed over to the bandits. Thus, keeping children in school and feeding them on site is a great contribution to parents. Thank you very much for the lunch Program of St. Therese School.
As for the evolution of Covid-19 for the parishioners of St Louis Cathedral in Jeremie, the situation remains stable. There are no known cases of people in the parish suffering from the Covid-19.
I wish all the parishioners of Our Lady of the Assumption Cathedral, the Pastor, and your family my best wishes for the health in the New Year! May Our Lady of the Assumption keep you under her mantle of grace! God bless you.
