Haiti Twinning is an ongoing reciprocal relationship between the people of St. Thomas and Ste. Marie-Madeleine, sharing our lives, talents, resources and prayers, resulting in spiritual growth and justice.
Since 1999 our suburban Chicago parish has partnered with Ste. Marie-Madeleine parish in Duchity, a mountainous rural area of Haiti. Our Twinning relationship results in mutual gifts. This means that everyone in the relationship gives, and everyone in the relationship receives.
The goal is not to provide material goods, but to be in a relationship with our Haitian brothers and sisters resulting in their recognition and use of their own and their community’s capabilities, skills and resources.
We welcome you – sharing your talents and resources for the good of this Twinning relationship!
