Haiti: More Than a Cathedral

On Sunday, January 12, 2014 on the fourth anniversary of the earthquake, we will invite our sisters and brothers in the Episcopal Church and beyond to make a special offering to help rebuild the center of life and culture in Port-au-Prince that will be the new Cathedral. Learn More. (Seeing the plans is fascinating!)

It has been three years – and counting – since the devastating January 12, 2010 earthquake when lives, schools, churches, and employment were shattered in 35 seconds. With 255 schools and 37 hospitals and clinics, the Diocese of Haiti felt keenly the loss of 80% of its infrastructure. In Port-au-Prince, we lost more than a cathedral, we also lost Holy Trinity Primary, Secondary, Music and Trade Schools, the Convent of the Sisters of Saint Margaret (all on the Cathedral Complex), St. Vincent’s School for the Handicapped, our University, College Saint Pierre, income-producing rental properties and more.
