Church in Latin America urges faithful to remember Haitian earthquake victims


Bishops in Latin America and the Caribbean have expressed solidarity with Archbishop Louis Kebreau, the president of the Haitian Bishops’ Conference, and have called for continued assistance to the country, which is still suffering from the January 12 earthquake.

“We cannot forget this brother country, to which we manifest our solidarity and closeness once again. We must look forward together with them,” the bishops said after a meeting convened by the Church in Haiti.

They added that the Social Observatory of the Latin American Bishops’ Council will be the go-between for the region’s bishops’ conferences, in order to move forward with a second wave of aid. 

“We recognize that the pilgrim Church of Haiti encourages us to walk with hope in order to discover God’s plan in this tragic and challenging incident and to grow as a missionary Church in communion,” the bishops said in their statement.
