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.
To get more information about this group please contact the church office at 913-236-8600.
