Church of St. Pierre (San Pye)

Our sister parish project enables many people—especially children—in St. Pierre parish, Baradères, Haiti, to obtain health and educational services they otherwise would not have.

In this way we seek to help the people build a better future for themselves, their family and their community.

The project is a parish ministry of St. John the Baptist Catholic Community, Silver Spring, Maryland.

The project team's most recent visit to Baradères was a week-long mission in January 2012. Click here for a summary of the trip and reflections by team members.

At this website you can learn more about Baradères and the sister parish project—and how you can support it.

You can also explore many links to information about Haiti and her people, and what some of our previous visits have accomplished.

Haiti has an infant mortality rate of 71 per 1,000 births. Twenty-eight percent of children under 5 are malnourished. Life expectancy is 53 years. Half the people cannot read and write. But hand in hand with our brothers and sisters in Baradères, we are making a difference for thousands of children and their families in Baradères.

Most of our accomplishments in Baradères are works in progress. They will play out in the strands of individual lives—lives that are far away from us in miles but ever close to our hearts.

She's the future. You can help her build it.
