The sister parish project is a lay ministry of St. John the Baptist (SJB) Catholic Community in Silver Spring, Maryland.

For more than 25 years, the sister parish project has enabled many people—especially children—in St. Pierre parish, Baradères, Haiti, to obtain health and educational services they otherwise would not have.

The project supports medical clinics, teacher salaries, school lunch programs, and school supplies.

In March 2020, COVID-19 halted the education of all children in Baradères, including the more than 1,000 students in the St. Pierre parish elementary schools and its secondary school, the Collège Ste. Jean Baptiste. The students missed most of their spring term due to the coronavirus. In September, students and teachers returned to school.
