Serve Our World

Haiti
Since 1984, St. Michael’s has been building a relationship with the people in rural southwest Haiti through our partner parish, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Torbeck. The main focus of our partnership is supporting St. Paul’s as they provide education to over 200 children each year. St. Michael’s is the sole source of support for this elementary school. We provide funding to pay the teachers’ salaries, maintain the facilities, and provide school supplies and worm tablets for the students. We also send mission teams to aid in making improvements to the grounds of St. Paul’s and the school.

How YOU can help
This ministry needs your time, talent and treasure. Meaning, we need your prayers. We need your special abilities to further this ministry (contact us if you think you have a special skill we can utilize). And we need your financial support to keep the school and church going. 

Each year, St. Michael’s hosts a “Haiti Beans and Rice Brunch” to help raise awareness as we hold our annual financial drive. Donations can be made year-round. Checks can be made out to “St. Michael’s” with “Haiti Ministry” in the memo and turned into the church office or in the offertory plates during a Sunday worship service.

Kansas to Kenya (K2K)
The Kansas to Kenya (K2K) is an initiative sponsored by the Episcopal Diocese of Kansas which develops programs and projects in support of the Millennium Development Goals. Since July of 2007, teams consisting of clergy and lay leadership  travel to Kenya to provide community building and medical support to the Diocese of Nakuru. 

Each year, the medical and community team travel to communities within the Diocese of Nakuru providing infrastructure development, an eReader library project, micro-finance projects, the Agatha Amani House for battered women, support of the Ngeya School with academic achievement awards, scholarships, and school lunch funding. K2K also works for establishment of an Alcoholics Anonymous Chapter in Maai Mahiu and annual Women’s Conferences providing education to women on a variety of topics, provision of care to the sick in Mirangine and Nakuru with thousands of prescriptions dispensed free of charge, and partnering with Kijabe Hospital to provide monthly preventative dental care to communities and donation of mobile dental equipment. The college team travels every two years and works on infrastructure projects such as home construction and water collection.
