The parish has established a twinning relationship with Outreach to Haiti in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. The twinning committee works to educate the parish community about the plight of the Haitian people and the work of Outreach to Haiti. Additionally, it holds a craft sale of Haitian-made gifts to raise funds for our twinning efforts, and gathers a small number of parishioners to travel to Port-au-Prince each year to witness the works of Outreach to Haiti.

Who We Are
Outreach to Haiti is a successor organization to both Haitian Ministries for the Diocese of Norwich and Hospice St. Joseph for the Diocese of Norwich.
The merger in December 2010 of these sister agencies—each of which has been in Haiti for more than two decades—brings together long-standing programs and projects that support Haitians in need. Each now operates as one organization under the auspices of the Norwich Diocese.
All the programs of each agency have been preserved. Work will continue out of the Norwich Mission House (at #7 Rue Lorimer, Route des Frères, Petion-Ville since the earthquake) and at the Christ Roi location of Hospice St. Joseph in Port-au-Prince (at #33 Rue Acacia). Eventually, all operations will have the same Haiti headquarters at the Christ Roi campus.
The Connecticut office of Outreach to Haiti remains at 199 Broadway, Norwich, CT 06360. Our phone number (860.848.2237 ext. 206) also stays the same. Our email is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
