Haiti Ministry

For over a decade, St. Margaret Mary has journeyed with parishes in Haiti with the theme of “You can do it. We can help.” Our programs have included projects which provide a self-sustaining impact and crisis funding as natural disasters have required.

Newsletters

We publish a newsletter a couple times a year, to keep people informed, here are the last two.

The Program

The program is based on 4 principles:
  1. Haitian Self-Sufficiency: With a guiding hand, Haitians can do it themselves!
  2. Sustainability: We've identified numerous programs and projects that work!
  3. Transparency: Any exchange of money or deal is a clear and well known transaction. Each person's role is clearly defined.
  4. Clear Exit Time: The parish knows they will have us for 5 years. "If you stay too long, you become part of the problem, not the solution.

Videos about the Haiti Ministry

If you are interested in starting a mission program at your parish, we can help you get it off the ground using "Ken's Model" for Haiti.  If you have a current mission program, regardless of location, these methods can be implemented.

Contact us and we will set you up with a member from our ministry!
