Update Concerning Our Haitian Mission

We ask foremost for your prayers and if you are able to give alms please recall the holy injunction of St Isaac of Syria: “ If you have something above your daily needs, give it to the poor, and then go with boldness to offer your prayers, that is, to converse with God as a son with his Father.

Donations can be made through the website or by sending checks made payable to St Maximus/Haitian Mission to St. Maximus/Haitian Mission 4447 Gaskill Rd., Owego, NY 13827. 
 
Forgive me a sinner,
