Haitian Day (finally!)

After first canceling because of Hurricane Irene and then being unable to find enough buses the following Labor Day weekend, the annual Haitian Day at Maryknoll is finally happening!

Prayers bombarded heaven this week as the weatherman threatened not just rain but deluge. It did pour last night, and today it is overcast, but no rain is predicted for today. The sun may even peak through. The temperatures are in the mid 70s, so it's perfect for this type of outdoor event. An estimated 500 people will attend for prayers, talks, Mass and even a procession with a statue of Our Lady of Maryknoll.

Maryknoll Fr. Romane St. Vil coordinates this yearly gathering from among the Haitian communities from as far away as Staten Island and Long Island.

Many thanks to Maryknoll Father Ed Szendrey for sending in this photo.
