Ecumenical Haiti Ministry

The mission of the Ecumenical Haiti Ministry is both spiritual and material support for Ste. Thérèse de L'Enfant Jésus in Lilavois Haiti. In addition to including our Haitian brothers and sisters in our prayers the ministry has raised money through grants, drives and special events to fund what started as a feeding program alone, to now be that and so much more. This ministry, started at St. Patrick’s in Collinsville in 1999, now partnered with St. Mary Star of the Sea Unionville, has broadened support, to fund a wider range of needs for the school and the parish:
Provides a hot meal for more than 370 students every weekday of the school year;
Pays a significant portion of the teachers’ salaries;
Arranges scholarships for graduates, to enable them to pursue higher education;
Provides funds for capital projects, as they arise.

$ 10 buys a chair for a student to sit on.
$ 80 provides a hot meal for a child every weekday of the school year!
$ 450 provides a laptop computer for the computer lab!
$1,000 provides a scholarship for a graduate to pursue higher education!
