Preaching at St. Bernard Catholic Church in North Kingstown, RI this weekend, Deacon Moynihan noted, "As a missionary, I assure you that it is the strength of home community that really counts. You cannot go far or do much for others without the support of those at home behind you."
THP is blessed to have the support of many individuals, parishes and schools across the U.S. The community at St. Bernard's has supported THP for 15 years through second collections, events and visits from parishioners.
The Madeleine Parish is another 15-year supporter of the Project. This weekend, the Portland, OR community dedicated and blessed a display in the parish hall, commemorating the parish's support of the The Haitian Project and its Louverture Cleary School with a photograph and Haitian artwork.
THP Board Member and long-time Madeleine Parishioner, Steve Holmes noted, "The display will be both a reminder and celebration of the history of the parish's support of The Haitian Project and a call to continue The Madeleine's tradition of giving back to the community through its numerous outreach activities."
