Student Memorial : Episcopal University, Haiti
One of the most moving things I saw today:
This is a memorial to the students from the Episcopal University of Haiti who lost their lives during the earthquake in 2010.
The professor with whom we spoke wanted to be sure that we saw it before we left. The students' photos are on the side of the base of the statue and their names are carved into the top.
We learned after we got back on the bus that the base of the statue actually holds the students' remains.

|Celebrate the Confirmation of Someone Special in Your Life with an Anglican Rosary
The Anglican Rosary is a contemplative prayer form where the goal is internal silence. This silence opens up the soul to listening to the Holy Spirit.
The Anglican rosary is fairly modern and combines the Roman Catholic Rosary with the Orthodox Jesus Prayer Rope.
The Rosary is comprised of 33 beads: the number of years of Jesus’ life. There is one invitatory bead followed by four sets of seven beads called weeks with a single bead called the cruciform that sits between each week. In the Judeo-Christian tradition, the number 7 represents spiritual perfection and completion.
The circle of beads is prayed, unhurriedly, three times to signify the Holy Trinity. The saying of the Rosary is followed by a period of silence for reflection.
|This Rosary is made in Fond Jean Noel, Haiti, and the sale of this specific piece supports a clinic and small school. The rosary comes packaged with a glossy card describing where it is made + an instruction sheet for use and a list of example prayers.
Join us on a Trip?
The Diocese of Milwaukee Haiti Project has had a 26 year partnership with the parish of St. Marc’s in Jeannette, Haiti. During this time many people have traveled on mission trips to build relationships, provide medical care, teach needed skills, repair infrastructure, and more.
Are you called to do the same? Are you called to be present, with our brothers and sisters in Haiti, and we grow together in the body of Christ?
If you are, we invite you to prayerfully consider participation in a Haiti Project mission trip. We are currently planning trips in the following time windows:
July Trip 2012 Report
Early October 2012
January 2013-Clergy Trip
February 2013-Medical Trip
Late April 2013

The Haiti Project sells delicious Haitian coffee called Singing Rooster -- named after Bishop's Steven Miller's favorite alarm clock in Jeannette: Big Red - whose wake-up calls began at 1:58 am, then 2:45, 3:17... you get the picture (true story)
In 3 years, we've raised OVER $25,000 JUST by selling this coffee -- we use it parish wide during fellowship hour and hold coffee sales at church.
Using coffee as a means to support our brothers and sisters in Haiti is a win-win: Haitian farmers win immediately when we purchase their green beans at much, much higher than fair trade prices (Singing Rooster paid over $4 per pound at the 2012 harvest -- fair trade prices are under $3.10).
Singing Rooster meets and then exceeds principles of Fair Trade.
Drink Singing Rooster Haitian coffee, support an economy. Pass it on.
Ask Molly at Singing Rooster -- how your organization can use Haitian coffee to raise money for your own work in Haiti and elsewhere around the world.
