Haiti Orthodox Family Relief

(h/t: Byzantine, TX)

(ROCOR-EAD) – With the blessing of His Eminence, Metropolitan Hilarion, on Thursday, August 12, His Grace Michael, Bishop of Geneva and Western Europe, conducted an archpastoral visit to the parish of Blessed Augustine in Jacmel, Haiti. The parish recently obtained new property on which the parishioners hope to build a new church. His Grace performed the rite of blessing of the land, co-served by Administrator of the ROCOR Mission in Haiti Archpriest Daniel McKenzie, his assistant Priest Matthew Williams, parish rector Priest Jean Chenier-Dumais, Priest Gregoire Legouté, and Deacon Andrei Rudenko (cleric of Holy Trinity Monastery in Jordanville).

Our parishes in Haiti are in dire need of financial assistance. The best way to support our brothers and sisters in Christ is through the newly established Haitian Orthodox Family Relief Program, which provides a means for sending much-needed monthly funds to a poor Orthodox family in Haiti for the period of one year. The site can be contacted through the Eastern American Diocesan website. Please take a moment to visit the new program at:
