Presented by: St. Blase Justice and Peace

Bishop Tom Gumbleton has been travelling to Haiti for almost twenty years as a friend of the Haitian people, working to improve the lives of the poorest of the poor.  He has also worked tirelessly to tell the world the real story of why Haiti is so poor; and what really needs to be done to help Haiti survive.  Bishop Gumbleton has been back to Haiti several times since the devastating earthquake of January, 12, 2010 and will provide us with an update on conditions in Haiti since the earthquake.  We will learn why there has been so little progress for so many people, why potable water and permanent housing is still so rare, what happened to all the aid promised to Haiti – and what we can do to help.  Please join us!
