Homily from Cardinal Gregory
Please enjoy this excerpt from one of Cardinal Gregory’s homilies. His words speak to how the history of social justice movements since St. Katharine has shaped today’s landscape. It is an important reminder of how far we have to come. (Thank you to the Diocese of Washington for sharing this video with us!)
Belle Glade Ministry – Sr. Laura
ASBS in Belle Glade
Although there are only 2 SBS remaining in Belle Glade, the Associates of the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament in Belle Glade remains a strong group. Together, they participate in monthly prayer services, go on reflective retreats, and work to empower the Haitian community in southern Florida.
SBS & ASBS Ministry in Ferrier, Haiti
Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament served the Haitian Community in Ferrier, Haiti for 13 years. (1990-2001 and 2005-2007) Sr. Donna Breslin and Sr. Pat Downs went from Belle Glade in 1990 and began the ministry in Ferrier. We shared life with the people in Saint Charles Borromeo Parish, and the Oblates of Mary Immaculate. Needs of the people were responded to as we listened to what was expressed by them.
