Haiti Earthquake

Haitians crowd the rubble-strewn streets of Port-au-Prince in the aftermath of
Tuesday’s massive earthquake.

The US-Toronto Region joins the Institute in expressing sorrow for the earthquake victims in Haiti. We share the pain and suffering of Haitians caused by this tragic calamity.  

None of the Brothers were injured in the devastating earthquake on Tuesday, January 12. The novitiate in the capital city of Port-au-Prince, with its four novices and two staff, are safe. Other than minor damage on the school building in Port-de-Paix, the Brothers’ community in that city and in Ile de la Tortue (Turtle Island) are fine. 

For more information about the earthquake from Brother Bernard Collignon, head of the Lasallian Sector in Haiti, and to send a donation to the Haiti Emergency Relief Fund in the Generalate, click here.

Teachers and youth ministers may wish to visit the Catholic Relief Service (CRS) website for a list of resources that can be used by young people who wish join in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Haiti.
