St. Mary’s is actively engaged in an ongoing Mission Partnership with the Society of St. Margaret, an Episcopal Religious Order, to help sustain a scholarship program for children and young people in Haiti who otherwise would be forced to drop out of school for lack of ability to pay even minimal fees. Haitian children are not provided with free, public education as we are in the United States. These scholarships support any child in any school that is in danger of having to drop out because they cannot pay the modest fees required to continue their education.
Since the 2010 earthquake and its aftermath, this Scholarship Program has become a major pastoral and outreach mission. Education is a precious privilege – the door to the future for Haiti and Haiti’s children. The cost of tuition from pre-school to the end of secondary school varies from $250 to $1000 US dollars per child per year. Last year, St. Mary's donated over $1000 to help transform the lives of Haitian children and bring the gift of hope.
St. Mary's has donated more than $1800 to support our missions in Haiti in the past year. For more information about our Mission Partner in Haiti, click here.
