Liturgical vestments sent to Haiti to revive liturgical life

.- In response to a request by the Apostolic Nuncio to Haiti for assistance in rebuilding and organizing liturgical life in the country, various bishops in Spain have donated and sent “almost 100 chalices, ciboria, patens and numerous liturgical vestments.”

According to a press release, the request for assistance was made by Nuncio to Haiti, Archbishop Bernardito Auza through the NGO, “Messengers of the Peace.” Archbishop Auza met with founder and president of the NGO, Fr. Angel Garcia and communicated his request to the dioceses of Spain.

Fr. Garcia also urged listeners of his radio program on COPE Radio Network to donate liturgical items to the earthquake-stricken country.  The priest noted that several religious goods stores responded immediately, sending their donations directly to the churches in Haiti.

Fr. Garcia added that a box of rosaries from Rome was mailed to Archbishop Auza. They will be distributed to seminarians in Port-au-Prince.

The statement then noted that the donations from the Spanish bishops “will be personally delivered to Archbishop Auza by Fr. Julio Millan Medina, president of “Messengers of the Peace” in the Spanish region of Andalusia, during his trip to Haiti on March 13.
