Fr. Charles (Haiti) Visits Hunger Hike Team

HH LogoThis past Monday, the Hunger Hike team had a rare visit from the pastor from St. Francis Xavier Church in Baudin, Haiti—Father Charles Jean Pierre. Through the Haiti Ministry at St. Thomas Aquinas Center, Baudin is our “sister” community in Haiti.

Fr. Charles met with several groups including the Hunger Hike team. His message was simple — thank you, we need you, and you’re having a positive impact.

The meeting also included reports from members of the Haiti Ministry, John Ginda & Rob2015-08-24 2015-08-24 001 087 (2) (1024x1023) Pahl, as well as the St. Tom’s pastor, Fr. Patrick Baikauskas.
