6,400 Kreyol Bibles destined for Haiti.
These Bibles were obtained by Wendy Hickey from World Missionary Press, Inc. and have been donated to HBHH. They will go to Fort Liberte Diocese, one of the poorest areas in Haiti. From there, they will be used by many school children who will learn to read from these Bibles. Many churches will also benefit from these Bibles.

We are very excited to be able to share God's Word in the native Kreyol language. A great gift indeed!

Teens help move these Bibles to HBHH's warehouse where it will go on a Food for the Poor container to Cap Haitian, Haiti. From there it will be picked up by Fr. Medenel and distributed throughout the diocese.Posted by Picasa

Advent Social Organizers with Fr. Daly Posted by Picasa Organizers, Theresa Miller and Barbara Byars pose with graphic artist Ann Griffin and Pastor, Fr. Daly at the annual Women’s Advent Social at Christ the King Parish Center in Tampa, FL Nov. 27, 2005.

It was a lovely evening filled with prayer, good food and fellowship. Over 200 women attended from all over the diocese.

Fr. Desinard Jean made the trip from Port-au-Prince to be with us and to share the problems facing him and the people of Haiti. Fr. Jean is in charge of all the Catholic Radio Stations in Haiti. He resides in Port-au-Prince, near the slums where much of the violence originates.

We were pleased that we raised enough money to give Fr. Jean a check for Radio Soleil, his radio ministry, and raised money to help pay some of the tuition of Fr. Jean’s needy children.
