Our Corporal Works of Mercy Ministry partners with the American Haitian Foundation to assist with the exceptional education provided at CESA, a Catholic school in Petite Riviere de Nippes, one of many impoverished towns in Haiti. 

The American Haitian Foundation is dedicated to working with Haitians to improve their future by providing a quality education for students that empowers them to be self-reliant and to make positive contributions in their communities. Education is the building block for future community development and the best tool at combating poverty.

Each year in November, St. Michael’s Parish hosts a student sponsorship fair. Parishioners sponsor a student for $200 per year. This ensures that the children of CESA receive a first-class education, a hot meal every day, uniforms and a yearly physical exam.
