Featured Donors, Leaders and Fundraisers
"I feel our story could inspire other Parishes to do likewise."
Larry Reyman (pictured, far left) is proud of the work he and his church have been able to accomplish with their Sister Parish in Haiti, but he felt there was more he could do. Larry describes himself as “old school” but he realized that doing something online might be the answer to spread the word to more people and better support their collaborative projects in Haiti.
Larry discovered MISSIO in an email and "was very impressed." He confirmed MISSIO's Papal approval with his Archdiocesan Missions office, and the rest is history. The St. Anthony & St. Anne Sister Parish Covenant has helped fund the construction of a brand-new school and continues to help pay the teacher salaries. They are currently raising money to build a cistern for clean drinking water at the school.
For other parishes who want to do more with their Twin Parish relationships, Larry recommends, "Don’t be discouraged or distracted…Start small, take direction, pray, trust God, and act."
Thank you for the great advice, Larry!
