The Haiti Committee of Saint Matthew Catholic Church exists to support, nurture, and educate the people of our sister parish in Gobert, Haiti. We seek to involve our parishioners and encourage them to share their resources to provide hope, health and healing to the parishioners of Our Lady of Miracles. By sharing our common faith and Christian love, we hope to foster understanding, respect and unity between our cultures.
Since 1995, the church of St. Matthew has been sending monthly collections to Our Lady of Miracles, our sister parish in Haiti, to support the day-to-day church operations. In April of 2002, our Pastoral Parish Council voted the Haiti mission as an official ministry at St. Matthew. A fact-finding mission then traveled to Haiti in May 2003. When they witnessed the conditions in Gobert, the group was overwhelmed by the tremendous need.
