Over 30 years ago Holy Family Catholic Church in Jasper, IN became a partner in the Parish Twinning program. Our parish was linked with Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church in Dupity, Haiti. Since that time we have made a number of mission trips to Dupity. Priests from Dupity have traveled to Jasper. We have a committee that works closely with the priests at Our Lady of Perpetual Help parish to assist in meeting the needs of the parish and the people of Dupity. Parishoners from Holy Family Catholic Church in Jasper, IN as well as St. Isidore Catholic Church in Celestine / Dubois, IN have made it a priority over these many years to offer financial support and prayers for the people of Dupity. More importantly the faith filled people of Dupity have helped us with their fervent prayers. They continue to teach us what true reliance on God means. We are blessed by our relationship with the people of Dupity, Haiti.
There is such great need in Haiti that it becomes overwhelming at times when trying to help. We focus our efforts on:
-Supporting the parish of Our Lady of Perpetual Help with our prayers and financial assistance
-Providing food and clean water
