Reaching Out into the World
All Saints’ Partnership with Haiti Through a program of the National Association of Episcopal Schools, All Saints’ has been paired with an Episcopal church and day school in Haiti: Saint
Paul’s in Gascogne. We have been sharing culture and resources with our partner, St. Paul’s, in
Haiti’s Central Plateau. These partnerships were in the works long before the earthquake hit Haiti in January 2010. Our engagement includes mission trips and visitations, ongoing prayer spiritual support, potential building projects, school programs, and more. This relationship provides us an opportunity to do what God has called us to do.
Here is a snapshot of our companion parish and school: they have 250 people for Sunday worship, 300 students in the day school, and a staff of 6 teachers, a principal, and a guard. Their priest is Pere Alphonse. Through the hard work and generosity of All Saints' Episcopal Church & Day School, we have provided a new school building, a cistern and water system, a latrine, goats, wedding rings, school supplies, and a number of other items that continue to improve the conditions of St. Paul’s community.
