A Christ Church group will travel to Haiti August 18-24 to visit with our parish partners at St. Luc’s Episcopal Church in mountainous Lazil. The trip is co-led by Rev. Holly Hartman and Barbara Murphy and includes a member of St. Paul’s Church in Newton Highlands as well as a veterinarian and veterinary technician. The focus of the partnership is friendship; supporting the parish school and its music program; and working to sustain a small goat cooperative that we helped villagers start with funds from the Boston Diocese. The travelers will bring donations from generous parishioners and friends. They will help build classroom benches and organize a fun day for the children. The partnership is in its tenth year.
