Our relationship with the St. Charles’ sister parishes located in greater Cavaillon, Haiti is going strong after some 30 years!
Just as Jesus educated, fed, and healed those He encountered in and around Galilee, so do we at St. Charles—through the generosity of parishioners, family and friends—work to help educate, feed, and foster good health for the families in greater Cavaillon in these ways:
- Education: Help give more of the children the opportunity to go to the Catholic schools by funding part of the costs to operate the elementary schools run by the sister parishes.
- Nutrition: Help give the local farmers a better opportunity to plant and sell their crops while at the same time feeding the children lunch at the sister parish elementary schools by investing in and acquiring rice, beans, et al. from the agriculture cooperative, KAMAK.
- Health: Foster health awareness and better water for the sister parish school students and the citizens of Cavaillon by funding the cost to drill water wells, install water piping and a cistern at the parish secondary school, teach children about good hygiene, and so forth.
Cavaillon is a rural (agricultural) community, located on the Cavaillon river in far western Haiti. St. Charles shares with two parishes: Our Lady of Perpetual Help parish and St. Joseph parish. St. Charles shares with these parishes both spiritually and materially, and they pray for us!
