|Following a 2010 7.0 earthquake in the Diocese of Haiti that killed nearly 300,000 people, our diocese took on a major initiative to assist in rebuilding and restoring lives in Haiti. This commitment included a half-million dollar gift devoted to rebuilding a school and a portion of the Episcopal cathedral in Haiti.
St. Andre School
Work on the St. Andre School in Mithon building and grounds has now been completed, including a well for the school and community to obtain water. Work on the cathedral is continuing.
Lunches and Lessons
Lunches and Lessons is a newer initiative Before this program was created, most students at St. Andre School in Mithon went without lunch on school days because their families simply could not afford the cost of a lunch. This program is now helping to provide those lunches and additional help with instruction and other opportunities designed to help students achieve a future of health and, eventually, self-sufficiency. This three-year initiative is managed by Trinity Episcopal Church in Bloomington on behalf of the Diocese of Indianapolis. To learn more about this ministry in Haiti and how you can help, go to LunchesAndLessons.org. You can also offer a gift to support Haiti by going to the Make a Gift section of this web site.
