St. Anthony of Padua Parish has twinning relationship in Haiti

Thank you for your story in the Nov. 2 issue of The Criterion regarding the parish twinning program at St. Thomas Aquinas Parish in Indianapolis.

It is great to see an article that addresses this wonderful program and the involvement of local parishes.

However, one parish in our archdiocese was not listed among those that take part in a parish twinning program.

St. Anthony of Padua Parish in Morris has a twinning parish relationship with St. Francis Xavier Parish in Gandou, Haiti.

By providing financial support and participating in medical trips, the members of St. Anthony Parish have found a rewarding way to help make a difference in a country that has such great need.

One couple in the parish is even anticipating the arrival home of two young girls that they have adopted from Haiti.
