Tuesday, August 8 at 7 p.m. in the Conference Room
Haiti is one of the two key interests of the Global Mission Committee. (The other is taking part in the Sussex County Refugee Coalition) Recently we gathered with Father Mark and his long-time friend from Haiti, Pere Yvan, to plan our next steps in working together~ Haitian parishes and St. Peter's ~ to develop each of our community's assets. Two of our teams and two from Haiti attended Asset Based Community Development training in the U.S. Now we are ready to use it for the betterment of both parishes. Next step: parishioners in San Pierre and St. Peter's will begin the ABCD training. Of the 18 people trained, 8 will go to Haiti in the fall, to share what was gained and discuss next steps for mutual development. The next meeting of the Global Mission Committee will be held on August 8, at 7 pm. All welcomed to join us.
