from Fr. Rick
As we remember the victims of the devastating earthquake in Haiti,
seven years ago this January 12, 2017,
we also marvel at the seven years of strength and courage of the
survivors, and how vibrant the Haitian people continue to be, even
though very far from recovered.
This spirit of life and vitality persists, in spite of ensuing
years of cholera, tropical storms, hurricanes, and political upheavals.
We also remember, in solidarity, many of you who have suffered
earthquakes and hurricanes and terrorist acts during these past seven
and you whose shores are full of immigrants seeking a better life,
fleeing the horrors of war.
We join our prayers to yours.
We will mark the day with a memorial mass at St. Damien
Hospital at 9 am, burial of about 50 destitute dead at Titanyin (with a
simple mass there for all victims),
and a quiet laying of the wreath with the prayers for the dead, for our
own victims, at our memorial in Petionville.
(where the original St. Damien Hospital was destroyed on that day).
Thank you for your friendship, solidarity and prayer.

Year of Mercy Contines ...A Way of Life
March 3, 2017
Luke's Parish Center
Pope Francis inaugurated the Year of Mercy, to call attention to God’s
unconditional mercy for each of us, and our call to reflect that mercy
to the world. The Year of Mercy is just the beginning of the path we
must take for our lives.
We invite you to St. Luke’s
Life in Christ Gatherings to encourage
personal growth in the mercy and love of Christ. Each
gathering will be different, often building upon the prior and will
emphasize keeping mercy at the center of our lives.
The format of the Gatherings will be similar to our Mercy Retreats — a
meal, conversation, presentation, small group sharing and an
opportunity for prayer and reflection.
