Statement from Most Reverend Gerald M. Barbarito on the Earthquake in Haiti, August 17, 2021
We join in prayer and support for our brothers and sisters in Haiti who are currently suffering overwhelming loss through natural disasters. Many within our Diocesan family have close ties to Haiti through their background and family presently living there. We join with them in a special way. We support the work of Catholic Relief Services now assisting in Haiti and encourage financial support of its efforts through our Diocesan website. Your help, no matter what it may be, will provide relief. Above all, our prayers for the people of Haiti are paramount at this time.
