Haiti Missionary Priest Life Spared

Fr. Rick Frechette With Mother Teresa

The Passionists Need You To Help With Haiti Earthquake

Fr. Rick Frechette, CP American physician and Passionist priest, has been serving in Haiti for the last 22 years. Most recently he has been overseeing the 120 bed children’s hospital, St. Damien’s, located in Port-Au-Prince. The hospital provides long-term care to critically ill children and provides outpatient service to over 30,000 children and adults each year.

According to Fr. Rick, the hospital has been severely damaged by Tuesday’s earthquake. Parts of the hospital and the chapel have collapsed entirely, in addition to much of the wall surrounding the property.

Fr. Rick was in the U.S. attending to his dying mother at the time of the earthquake but is already on his way back to Haiti. Even prior to the earthquake, Fr. Rick has stated that he has never seen any place as devastated as Haiti with its heartbreaking poverty and desperate living conditions. This latest event compounds what is already a severely distressed city and country, with children being the most vulnerable to the effects of this cataclysmic occurrence.
Please send a donation today to help Fr. Rick in his vital ministry to Haiti’s children.

  • Claudio,

    I wish I could be more helpful, but it takes me hours to figure out how to get this site looking the way it does.
    I would recommend starting with blogger as it is easier for the beginner than WP.

    Hello, how are you doing? I truly like ur blog! I was wondering if you might assist me (im positive other subscribers may also be interested). I would also like to get involved in creating a blog as well and I currently have a blog with Word Press, but it is quite confusing for me to make and I would like to attempt to find some training materials or courses (hopefully free) that can hopefully assist me in using word press correctly. As a Word Press web master yourself, do u perhaps know where i could get online tutorials to do this myself?? Thanks!

    I finally decided to send relief for Haiti’s people. I suggest that you give to those scarred by Haiti’s disaster as well.

    May all the Haitian people know that they and all of their priests are in our prayers daily. I am curious to know how many priests have arrived from foreign countries to assist the religious in Haiti in providing the sacraments to your suffering and dead. God bless all those engaged in this effort.
