Missioners Wanted!

St. Paul's and Haiti

  • Medical Mission to Haiti

    A medical mission will be heading to Haiti on April 28, 2012. Donations are being requested for prenatal and chewable multiple vitamins. (Generic is just fine - NO GUMMIES, please) There is a collection box in Coffee Area/ Parish Hall for donated items.

  • Easter With Haiti

    In February 2012, Ted Cassidy and I teamed up with a group from Church of the Nativity in Huntsville, Alabama to help build a running water system and plant a garden in the city of Thomazou, Haiti (you can read about my experience here).  I met an old friend of our community by the name of Father Pierre Valmar or Pere Val as he is called by his friends.  He is an extraordinary man with an even more extraordinary community that reaches across several suburbs and villages of Ha...

  • Ted Cassidy Honored by Society of Universal Dialogue

    "One billion hungry in the world - what is your role?" That question is the theme for the year of Nashville's Society of Universal Dialogue (SUD). Ted Cassidy's answer to that question is clear and unambiguous: "What I know how to do and what I do well - plant a garden." That's exactly what Ted has done. Many of you know that Ted Cassidy is a professional farmer and landscaper.

Missioners Wanted!

Beginning this summer, we will actively begin the rebuilding stage of our response to the earthquakes in Haiti. A number of building mission trips are planned for the summer and fall. We are invited to join a group from St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in Birmingham to go to Haiti and participate in this work. The dates of the trip are Sunday, July 11th to Saturday, July 17th. I will serve as one of the co-leaders of the trip. There are four additional slots available (the team will total ten). Although plans are still evolving, we are currently scheduled to help put in a vegetable garden to provide fresh vegetables to the children’s nutrition clinic.

Here is the basic information you need to know if you are thinking of participating in this mission trip:

  • The cost will be $1,250.00 (all inclusive)
  • Accommodations include sleeping in a tent on a cot, three meals a day (the food is excellent!), and good bathroom facilities, and plenty of good, fresh water 
  • We will be working alongside the Haitians 
  • Current passport required 
  • Minimum age of 18 
  • It is hot in Haiti in July!
  • There will be a goodly amount of pre-trip planning required 
  • Knowledge of Creole or French is not required

While the work will not be extremely difficult, it will require folks in good health who can tolerate the heat of the Haitian summer. The temperature averages in the upper eighties during the day and the mid seventies at night. I can guarantee that it will be an experience you will never forget!

This is NOT the only opportunity you will have to go to Haiti on a mission trip. There will be a number of trips over the next year or so. If you are interested in participating, please contact the church office.
