Hope for Haiti

Starting in 2017, Associates from Franciscan Ministries and all of its sponsored communities, were asked to donate to raise funds for a for a family in Haiti. Because of their generosity, a new home was built for the Rosie Compere Family residing in Holy Family Village in Pistere, Haiti. In honor of the Franciscan Sisters 125th Anniversary, and due to the generosity of Franciscan Associates, the legacy and dreams of Mother Mary Theresa continue with the gift of ‘another home that love built.’ Below is a video of the Franciscan Sisters of Chicago offering their thanks and blessings.
