La Hoye Haiti Spring 2023 News
Christ the King School is in full operation this school year. Father Laguerre heads Christ the King Church and its 120-family membership.

The school, headed by principal Franz Flamand, services grades 1 to 8. There are 8 teachers with 250 to 300 students attending. St. Andrewʼs and St. Paul’s have provided financial support for the school for over 15 years. This yearʼs financial commitment to Christ the King school of $3500 is due this coming August.

Father Laguere has also started a simple health clinic for the families in his parishes. St. Andrewʼs has sent over $3300 to help support this clinic. The government collapse and civil chaos have created an unsafe environment for travel in Haiti. The health clinic has been opened for two years and provides very basic health care so parishioners donʼt have to travel far.

St. Andrewʼs Outreach Committee and Vestry are asking once again for your financial support for these two ongoing projects at our sister church, Christ the King, La Hoye. Thanks for all your past support. You can give online or send an offering to the church.

There are many needs in Haiti. Your donations will help keep our current promises to Christ the King Church and School and help support future projects.

Haiti Fundraiser Envelopes
Please look for Haiti Fundraiser Envelopes in baskets at the entrances to the church.  Your donation is appreciated in any month.

Haiti Luncheon
Over $1,000 was donated to St. Andrew’s Haiti mission on May 21.  This is amazing!  These funds will tremendously help St. Andrew’s meet our commitment to support Christ the King School and Health Clinic in La Hoye, Haiti.
