Bishop Duracin, was made homeless by the devastating earthquake in 2010 which forced him to live in a tent city in downtown Port au Prince where he cared for 3,000 other homeless victims. More than 100 of the diocese's churches were damaged or destroyed including the beautiful Cathédrale Sainte Trinité (Holy Trinity Cathedral) in Port-au-Prince. At least four of the diocese's 254 schools, ranging from pre-schools to a university and seminary, were destroyed.
Haiti is numerically the largest diocese in the church with more than 83,000 Episcopalians in 169 congregations served by just 37 clergy. To Love a Child looks forward to his visit. More information on the concert will be out soon.
