Redemptorists reaching out to help in Haiti

Redemptorists of the Baltimore Province are praying for the thousands of people affected by the massive earthquake that devastated Port-au-Prince, the Haitian capital, January 12. We pray especially for our fellow Redemptorists of the Haitian province who have been heroic in their efforts to help people live their faith and to address the serious social concerns in the country.

We pray in thanksgiving for the safety of one of our seminarians, Jacky Merilan, a native of Port-au-Prince, who is in his novitiate year at St. Alphonsus Villa in Glenview, IL. We continue to pray for the safety of his family and friends.

Baltimore Provincial Patrick Woods has committed to making a donation to assist our Haitian confreres in the recovery efforts.

“If you wish to contribute, I can assure you the money will go directly to our men in Haiti who will use it to help ease some of the terrible suffering those already very impoverished people are experiencing,” Father Woods said. “A great patron of the people of Haiti is Our Mother of Perpetual Help. I ask your prayers to Our Mother that she brings comfort to her suffering children.”

If you would like to make a gift to the Redemptorists to help them with relief and recovery efforts in Haiti, please make a donation for General Ministry Support using our online donation form. Please mark the gift as in honor of Haiti. Any online donations marked for Haiti will go directly to help the Redemptorists on the ground in Port-au-Prince.

Thank you for your generosity and may Our Mother of Perpetual Help be with all those impacted by this tragedy.
