Thank you for acting on an invitation to learn more about the St. Rose of Lima School in Gris-Gris, Haiti, and Our Children of Promise – Haiti campaign to sustain full funding of this school.
You are most likely viewing this at the invitation of someone you know; someone who is already supporting the school as part of a broader sister parish relationship between the parishes of St. Rose of Lima in Haiti and Church of the Risen Savior in Burnsville, MN; someone who talked to you about this global outreach now in its 22nd year.
Our Risen Savior mission teams and parishioners have shared sister parish experiences and stories with others outside our parish community and the response is often an interest to learn more, while others have asked outright how they can help. This school funding campaign and its website has been developed to answer that question. Our Children of Promise are the students of St. Rose of Lima School.
By providing outstanding early education we strive to prepare these new generations of adults for healthier and sustainable livelihoods and to be full practitioners of their Christian faith and Haitian citizenship. We believe that such adults will be active partners in creating a better Haiti.
Our students have consistently scored exceptionally high on national tests with a few of them scoring among the highest in all of Haiti. St. Rose School has been operating in its new school building since Fall of 2007.
We invite you to partner with us as a Builder in any amount or as a Patron of St. Rose School. Your Patron donation of $100 assures a place for a student at the school for a full academic year and a nutritious meal each school day. For some it is their only meal of the day.
