Fr. Hugo, the Passionist priest from Haiti, celebrated Mass on Sunday at Santa Chiara…our first Mass at our home. Fr. Hugo was great. The kids loved him. And he made it sound as if he would like to come on a regular basis. One staff member said that he had not been in a church in at least 10 years…but he was moved by Fr. Hugo’s homily. He celebrated the liturgy in Creole…so I had not idea what the homily was about, but afterward a few people gave me a synopsis of what he said. As the MC sister said, “We love him. He speaks from the heart. He is very real.” After the Mass the priest toured our facility. He also said he was glad he did not have to drive up and down those dreadful roads every day.
