Haitian church in ruins, students' house destroyed

.- The secretary general of the Congregation of the Redemptorists, Fr. Joseph P. Dorcey, told Fides news agency that the Church of St. Gerard in Port-au-Prince was completely destroyed by the January 12 earthquake, however no Redemptorists were killed.
 
According to information provided by Fr. Mario Boies, C.Ss.R., Provincial Superior of the Province of Sainte-Anne de Beaupré, of which Haiti is a part, “No Redemptorist has died from the earthquake. They are all alive.”  He added that one Redemptorist was “slightly wounded” and another “lost his mother and sister.”
 
Fr. Dorcey said the Church of St. Gerard was “reduced to rubble” and the “new part of the students’ house was also destroyed,” leaving the students to sleep in the yard.

Reconstruction will cost an estimated two million dollars.
