About the Event

On August 14, an earthquake of magnitude 7.2 hit the southwestern region of Haiti. This earthquake was stronger than even the devastating earthquake that hit Port-au-Prince in 2010. Though the full extent of the damage is unknown, over 1400 people have lost their lives, those injured are now estimated at over 6,000, and thousands of buildings, including homes and Churches, were destroyed. Heavy rains and flooding have now complicated this.

What can we do? Our Catholic Faith calls each of us to care for those in need and, at this time in particular, for those who are suffering in the wake of this tragedy. We will have a second collection this weekend, which will be sent to assist in the recovery.

Your generosity and your prayers for the people of Haiti, including Fr. Tony’s family, are deeply appreciated. You can make your donation payable to the Diocese of Venice Haitian Relief and mail them to:
