We just received an inspiring story from our ministry partners at the Haitian Education & Leadership Program (H.E.L.P.) Cross Catholic sponsors H.E.L.P. students as they work toward their degrees at the University of Notre Dame, Haiti’s only Catholic university.

A couple weeks ago, a motor-scooter accident I had on the way to the office gave me a new perspective on asphalt – a very, very close one. God spared me from serious injury, and I was able to pick up the bike and ride it the rest of the way to my destination, but ...

I met 56-year-old Lucklis Boulet on my visit to Kobonal Haiti Mission last month. Though diligent and hardworking, Lucklis has always found it difficult to support his wife and children. That’s why he is so thankful for Father Glenn Meaux and his ministry. Today Lucklis is a member of the mission’s agriculture program and has ...

Count Your Blessings

On a recent trip to rural Haiti, I was inspired by the amazing work going on at the Kobonal Haiti Mission. One of the most memorable people I met was 62-year-old Adel St. Jacque. The first thing you notice about Adel is how thankful he is—for everything! I was privileged to spend a day riding ...

Happy St. Stephen’s Day!

If you’re like me, you probably never paid much attention to the lyrics of Good King Wenceslas. Oddly enough, the classic Christmas carol says nothing about Christmas. It does, however, mention the “feast of Stephen,” which falls on December 26. Let’s face it – Christmas is a tough act to follow. But St. Stephen deserves ...
