This is the second set of photos of Fr. Phechner and the Easter sharing with the poor near the Cathedral.
The photo is Fr. Phechner with the President of the Poor People. Yes, in Port-de-Paix, the poor have organized themselves in some way, and they now have a president to represent their needs to Fr. Phechner and the Bishop.
Fr. Phechner says that the President has a project to make badges for all the poor in this area. I don`t know if there is enough plastic in Port-de-Paix to make that many badges.
We wish you a peaceful Easter Season!!

Dear Fr. Greg,
I am forwarding photos of Fr. Phechner and the Easter sharing with the poor near the Cathedral in Port-de-Paix. Thanks to the Ladies of St. Andrew, I had given Fr. Phechner $500 from the Ladies for this project.
The black sacks contain smaller sacks of rice and beans, and a little bottle of cooking oïl. Fr. Phechner said taht about 80 people were served. One of the photos has the receipt for the rice, beans, and oïl--in Haitien dollars ($1 US = about 12 Haitien dollars)
Thanks again to the Ladies for their generous support.
