Dupity, Haiti

Holy Family Parish has adopted the parish of our Lady of Perpetual Help in Dupity, Haiti through the Parish Twinning Program.  Through monthly collection boxes, quarterly collection envelopes, Mass stipends, and cantor and musician funeral stipends, money is collected and sent to Dupity monthly.

Other major components of this program are the Student Sponsorship Program, which provides an individual, family, group or organization the opportunity to sponsor a student from Dupity, and the Women's Project, which helps provide funds for women in Dupity to begin small businesses.

Father Renell, pastor of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, oversees the administration of all funds that are received from Holy Family and remains in contact with the Dupity Committee on a regular basis.  

If you are interested in this type of service, please contact John Schroering at 812-482-4915 or Jan Stenftenagel at 812-630-3113.

More information is also available on the Friends of Dupity Facebook page.

These are photos of the new classrooms our donations help build for the children of Dupity!  Dupity has classes for children from preschool through 9th grade.  The second photo runs to the right side of the first, and the building in the background is Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church in Dupity.  

 May the Good Lord continue to bless your generosity!
