St. Monica is officially twinned to a parish in Hinche, Haiti – The Church of the Sacred Heart.
The effort is called our Twinning Program. We support Sacred Heart in meeting its practical day-to-day financial needs by our stewardship of Treasure. We also support its pastor in making an annual pilgrimage to our own parish to report on the progress of the Twinning Program.
Part of the Twinning Program is the Haiti Medical Mission. This mission, comprised of a group of doctors, dentists, nurses, and support personnel, travel to Haiti twice a year to work in the on-site clinic at Sacred Heart. With Haiti being the poorest country in the western hemisphere, many of its people have never seen a doctor and are in desperate need of medical help. Throughout the last seven years, our volunteers have raised enough money to establish a medical clinic at Sacred Heart Church, staff a doctor year-round and, in 2007, broke ground on a dental clinic on the church campus in Hinche, Haiti.
The Medical Mission is supported by the parish through monetary and medical supply donations as well as behind-the-scenes aid in preparing the team for its trip to Haiti each year. God has blessed our parish with many gifts, and we feel that He calls us to share our gifts with particularly less fortunate fellow Catholics.
