In 2017 Mission II Haiti raised money for a pickup to be used in their work in Haiti to improve water systems. They acquired a pickup that was blessed by Father Joseph Hannappel, St James Parish Kearney on December 17th. The truck was loaded with over 1,000 dresses that the women of the Grand Island Diocese have sewn, religious articles, rosaries and other supplies. Volunteers drove the truck to Miami where it was loaded on December 19, 2017. Volunteers left at the same time and are now in Haiti busy repairing wells and distributing the dresses and articles along the way.
The group plans will be returning to Haiti on October 1st. The dresses are very much appreciated. The group has identified several schools for distribution. So ladies, continue to sew the dresses and bring them to your Deanery & Parish CCW meetings so that they can be delivered for the next visit.
