Mission trip to Haiti

Haiti Initiatives

We are committed to providing financial, educational, medical and professional support to Haiti, emphasizing the following:

  • Focus on those who need our help the most
  • Provide assistance that is sustainable over time
  • Connect our community to the Haitian people in a meaningful way
  • Maximize the impact on the Haitian people.

Our partner in this mission is the St. Boniface Haiti Foundation (www.haitihealth.org), who, for almost 30 years, has been improving the lives of Haitians on the southern peninsula. While they provide many services (education, community and economic support), their central focus being healthcare. Their corporate headquarters is right here in the Boston area and their base of operations is the St Boniface Hospital in Fond-des-Blancs, Haiti.

We know how daunting it can be to come to a new church for the first time. All of us had a first time and we’re glad we dared. We hope you’ll be glad too. Here’s some of what you might like to know before walking up the front stairs.

Children stretching their arms

Every Sunday morning we gather to worship God with song, prayer, reflection and community. It sounds like a strange thing to do, but this is what defines us as God’s people in this place.
