Dear Brothers and Sisters at Good Shepherd Catholic Parish in Evansville, IN.

The twinning program is probably new to many of you.  I have decided, as the parish pastor of St. Rose of Lima, to write and give you an idea of your sister parish in Pilate, Haiti.

We are located in Northern Haiti.  St. Rose is a large parish with about 5,000 members.  In addition to the main church, there are 5 additional chapels located in more remote areas.

Each month, I will send a note updating you on our blessings and challenges.  May God bless you for your generosity.

Fr. Frantzdy Joseph, c.s.c.

Snapshots of Pilate, Haiti
by Nancy Mills
Published on Mar 29, 2013

In the early 1980s, St Theresa Catholic Parish in Evansville, Indiana adopted a Haitian parish through the Parish Twinning Program of the Americas.  In 2012, St. Theresa parishioner Mary Beth Davis and her two daughters visited that sister parish, St Rose of Lima, in Pilate Haiti, and its pastor, Father Snell Nord.  The Davis family also reconnected with their old friend Sister Lucie Laquerre, at Hospital L’Esperance (Hope Hospital) which services Pilate and where Sister Lucie has worked as a nurse for 40 years.

The highlights of Mary Beth’s trip are being made into a documentary that will cover such topics as Pilate’s school, hospital, reforestation program, methane-gas pilot project, parish life, and more.  Until that film, Snapshots of Pilate, is completed, this video will provide viewers with an overview of Mary Beth’s tour of Pilate. In the meantime, many sponsorship opportunities are available for those wishing to contribute to the worthwhile services being provided to Haiti’s.
