Day 2: making connectins

The photo in the earlier post: we are with the Dean of the Seminary,
Reverend Yvan Francois. A retired Haitian priest, and former head of
the Ecole St Peter for several decades (high school in done town Port
Au Prince).

We learned that there are 25 seminarians (only one is a woman). He
said, in time God willing more women will seek priesthood. The diocese
has over 200 missions, only 40 priests. They hope to add 60 more
priests to the ranks.

The Dean in the past spent some time at EDS, the Episcopal Divinity
School. We discussed our hope to host a seminarian as we continue to
deep relationships: with some parishes in our deanery, church of the
Holy Spirit (Mattapan) and the Epiphany School (Dorchester).

Much to pray about. Perhaps the Dean should come visit our diocese too.

No we are driving to the south, to Leogane.
