Lenten Mission: Haiti

Catholic Central High School has partnered with Haiti Needs You (a local non-profit aid organization) and West Catholic High School in a long term commitment for a combined Haiti school project.  This student to student project helps the children of Seguin, Haiti, and benefits the CC/WC students with the opportunity to serve and learn from our brothers and sisters in Haiti through this cross-cultural faith-enriching experience. Each Lent, we focus on this ongoing relationship through our Lenten Mission Project.

 

The Project:

  • Pray regularly for the people of Haiti.
  • Make an annual student trip to Seguin.
  • Help teach lessons in the school.
  • Provide toothbrushes and toothpaste for the 528 students.
  • Provide fluoride treatments for the students.
  • Provide Vermox to rid the students of internal parasites.
  • Provide water bottles/canteens for students.  When they arrive at school they fill the bottles with clean water, and when they go home they fill the bottles.
  • Assist in building a water purification system for the school.
  • Sponsor 20 students to attend school starting with preschool students and sponsoring them through high school.
