Haiti Mission Team
Departs for 2017 Trip

Early in the morning on Thursday, May 25, Sparkill's Haiti Mission Team -- a growing group of Sisters from multiple Dominican congregations and friends -- left for their 2017 trip to Haiti. The team has much to accomplish on this trip, including checking the status of our building projects and water wells, training local community leaders who will run this summer's kids' camp in the town of Cuvier, delivering medicine and hygienic supplies, and assessing hurricane relief progress.

Pictured below (l-r) are Sr. Valorie Lordi (Sparkill,) Sr. Pat Hogan (Sparkill,) Jackie Baptiste (Nurse at Dominican Convent in Sparkill and dear friend of the community,) and Sr. Eleanor Uhl (Domincian Sister of Caldwell,) as they arrived at the airport this morning.


Earlier this month, a group of Sisters, Associates and volunteers met in Convent Station, NJ to pack three large barrels full of supplies that were shipped to Haiti. The barrels carry materials for the Team's annual children's summer camp, medicines, hygiene items, t-shirts, flip flops, and more. The shipment was orchestrated in collaboration with the Sisters of Charity of St. Elizabeth from Convent Station, NJ, who have a full time ministry presence in Haiti and ship supplies there often.

Please join us in praying for these women as they travel to the devastated nation of Haiti in an effort to bring healing and hope. We will share more photos and updates after the group returns.
