In light of the tragic earthquake in Haiti, which was the worst in the region in more than 200 years, Episcopal Relief & Development is providing emergency funds to Haiti. Episcopal Relief & Development is working with the Diocese there to address immediate needs as a result of the earthquake and prepare for long term rehabilitation work.
Updated information will be posted to our website as we receive it. Communication is difficult right now as everyone can imagine and it may be some time before more details emerge.
In the meantime, please keep the people of Haiti in your prayers and make a donation to our Haiti fund:
"Most Merciful God, who in your great love and goodness hears the prayers of all your people and is ever-present with those who walk in the shadow of death: we hold in our prayers all who suffer loss and devastation in the wake of Haiti earthquake. Comfort those who mourn. Give hope to those whose hope has been taken away. Strengthen the will of people everywhere to generously give help and aid. Guide governments and agencies leading relief programs. For the sake of your Son, Jesus Christ, who suffered and died for the life of the world. Amen."
