Not many people know that there is a small but thriving Orthodox Church in Haiti. Thanks to Fr. John Peck, pastor of St. George Prescott, AZ for publishing these to his excellent website and granting me permission to place them here on my blog. Under the jurisdiction of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia (ROCOR), several parishes, chapels and schools have begun and are threatened by the terrible earthquake and events that have befallen that small country. Haiti and the Haitian people have suffered miserably from hurricanes, corrupt government, street violence, gangs, drugs, a collapsed economy, and now a catastrophic earthquake.
Yet in the midst of all this, the light of Christ continues to shine, saving and changing lives, healing, comforting, and offering hope to those who need it most.
Information can be obtained from two separate websites:
We still have no contact with any members of the Church there. As you can see from the map below, St. Dorothy Chapel and School is just north of Port-au-Prince, and St. Augustine Parish and School is just south.Please keep these dear ones in your prayers!
