Message from the Episcopal Conference of Haiti

Bishops attending the Episcopal Conference of Haiti, which began on Dec. 8 and will conclude on November 20, 2016, imparted spiritual and pastoral guidelines to help everyone live this Jubilee.

The Episcopal Conference provides guidelines to live the Jubilee

The Bishops of the Episcopal Conference of Haiti (CEH in French) provide spiritual and pastoral guidelines in order to help believers to live the Jubilee of Mercy proclaimed by Pope Francis. It began on December 8th and will culminate on November 20, 2106.

[…] Us, the Catholic Bishops of the Church of Haiti, Pastors of a people faced with so much suffering and misery …, we want everything to be done to allow the celebration of the Holy Year of Mercy in Haiti to be for everyone, believers and non-believers, a real moment of personal encounter with God’s mercy. We desire that the extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy be a living experience of God’s proximity who is a ‘Merciful’ Father”. It allows us to touch with a finger its tenderness, to restore hope and courage to all those tempted by despair and discouragement, especially the poorest, ‘life’s wounded’, the excluded of our society. […]

[…] To you all, we make a vow to live with joy this Christmas season, and to welcome in peace, serenity and trust, the Mercy of God throughout the Year 2016!”
