Rev. Soner Alexandre, our Associate Priest here at Church of the Messiah in Winter Garden, is a close friend of The Rev. Frederic Menelas, an Episcopal priest in Haiti for the past 10 years.

Rev. Menelas has shared that most infrastructure has been destroyed in Les Cayes and his church, St. Paul, has suffered extensive destruction. The church buildings and schools have been reduced to rubble and many church members are homeless and living in the street.

At Saint Sauveur, led by The Rev. Pierre August, the church buildings, schools and rectory are gone, leaving the priest with nowhere to live.

Alexandre’s suggestion is to help these two parishes. “No matter how small the support may be, it will make a big difference during this critical time,” he said.
