Outreach to Haiti, Inc.

The Diocese of Norwich Outreach to Haiti continues the important work of helping Haitians help Haitians in the impoverished neighborhood of Christ Roi, Port-au-Prince, Haiti.  A new building is under construction, to replace that destroyed by the earthquake.  The new building will again unite all services to improve Haitians' opportunities for access to healthcare, nutrition, educational sponsorship, twinning and hospitality to visitors.  The 30 year old commitment of the Diocesan mission in Haiti continues to be a strong presence to the people of Haiti.

Outreach to Haiti Statement on Earthquake
The following statement was posted Aug. 14 from Outreach to Haiti: Please keep Haiti and its people in your prayers after they suffered a major earthquake this morning.

The area struck was in Western Haiti, about 7.5 miles northeast of Saint-Louis du Sud, and about 90 miles southwest of the capital Port-au-Prince.

Letting God’s Light Shine in the Dark
While many are focused on the current situation in Haiti brought about by the assassination of  President Jovenal Moise, we should take heart in the light that shines forth from the work being done by Haitians that glorifies God. In Christ’s message to us in St. Matthew (5:16), “Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father.” Depending on the gifts God has given each of us, our light shines in many ways. The Diocese of Norwich Outreach to Haiti Ministry reflects God’s love and...

Instruments of His Love: A Population Forgotten by Their Government But Not By God
The Diocese of Norwich Outreach to Haiti has been serving some of God’s most fragile people, whose extreme poverty makes their lives tenuous. Our ministry walks with and serves the 60,000 men, women and children who live in Kris Roi (Christ the King) neighborhood of Haiti’s capital city, Port-au-Prince.  We have a staff of approximately 21 Haitians who are the “face” of our diocesan ministry. They feed the hungry, care for the sick and malnourished, and manage our education sponsorship program that sends about 200 young people to primary, sec...

A Bond That Connects Us All
Many of us have had those days when you wonder if what you do makes a difference in this life. As St. John Henry Newman, for whom the Newman Centers, found on many college campuses, were named, believed, “God…has committed some work to me which He has not committed to another. I have my mission. I may never know it in this life, but I shall be told it in the next. I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons.” The Diocese of Norwich Outreach to Haiti ministry is committed to walking with our brothers and sisters in Haiti and helping whe...

The Master Weaver
I sometimes think of God’s plan as one beautiful tapestry that will not be revealed to us until we meet Him. God’s plan involves all His children. He wants us to love and help each other as He loves and helps us. Each of us is one thread in the tapestry, but all the threads are needed. In this life, we need each other to do good works and to accept good works. The Diocese of Norwich Outreach to Haiti (Outreach) is one example of people loving each other and helping one another. Almost 40 years ago, lay people and religious from the Diocese of Norwich, incl...

Outreach to Haiti: The Gifts of Christmas
For many of us, the period between Thanksgiving and Christmas has become a special time for us to reflect on the approaching birth of Christ and to thank God for His many gifts by allowing His love to shine through us to help others.   Faith, our most important gift, allows us to know God and each other. While God has given each of us at least one talent, we know through the gift of faith we are brothers and sisters literally and figuratively because all men are made in the image and likeness of God. This gift of faith is evidenced by the Diocese of Norwich Out...

Outreach to Haiti: Why We Do Parish Twinning
“The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that a person took and sowed in a field” Matthew 13:31 Why are we involved in parish twinning? I was asked this question recently. Parish twinning allows us to help our sisters and brothers in the Faith in geographic areas less fortunate than ours. It is an opportunity to live out the Gospel values, build up the body of Christ, reach out in solidarity to our sisters and brothers in the faith in the underdeveloped world, have a fraternal relationship with them, and accompany them in their struggles for self-s...
