For more than a decade, St. Pius X Parish has shared a portion of our Sunday offertory with Sr. Luvia Joseph in Haiti. Our parish feeds and assists orphans and students in two Haitian communities.
 

THE 2010 EARTHQUAKE

Before the devastating 2010 earthquake, Sr. Luvia operated three K-12 schools, a vocational school and an orphanage. All but one of the schools was in the densely-populated capital city of Port-au-Prince. The other school is in the rural region of Miragoâne, a harrowing, three-hour, 50-mile drive west of the capital.

The earthquake destroyed two of her schools, damaged her orphanage where two girls perished, and claimed the lives of her sister and 150 students. Sr. Luvia is rebuilding her ministry to children.
