Earthquake Inflicts Catastrophic Damage
Reported from the ACC Provincial Web Site: “Father Jean Bein-Aime of the ACC in Haiti reports that the church’s orphanage in Port-au-Prince was completely destroyed by the quake that rocked the island Tuesday night.
The children and their caregivers escaped major injury, but many members of the ACC parishes in the area remain unaccounted for. There is some damage in Mononville, and the Province is at present awaiting reports from Tapio.
More information on the situation in Haiti will be posted as it becomes available. Archbishop Haverland requests that the people of the ACC keep Father Bien-Aime and the mission in Haiti in their prayers.
Those who wish to donate money for relief may do so through the ACC Missionary Society of St. Paul.”
