The Katharine Konnection

MD Bill to Help Haiti

The Haiti Committee has prepared letters on Haiti to Maryland’s U.S. Senators Cardin and Van Hollen asking for support of Senate Bill 396 on Haiti, the Haiti Criminal Collusion Transparency Act of 2023, (a copy of the Senate Bill can be viewed HERE) and a letter to Archbishop Lori asking him to seek action for the benefit of Haiti by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ International Committee on Justice and Peace.
 
The letters also ask for efforts to stop the flow of guns into Haiti which armed gangs are using to terrorize citizens.
 
Please stop by the Haiti Parish Partnership table in the narthex this weekend (14/15 October) to learn more and consider signing these letters in support of St. Hubert parish and the country of Haiti.
 
Copies of the letters can be viewed using these links:
Referenced attachment (Feb. 1, 2023 meetings memo) in letters to Sens. Cardin and Van Hollen.
 
We are coordinating this effort with other Catholic parishes with Haiti parish partnerships in various parts of the United States including Connecticut, Wisconsin, Indiana and Washington State. Note that there’s a reference in the letters to our Maryland senators to an attachment which describes a 1 February 2023 Zoom meeting with members of their staff.
 
If you are unable to visit our table in the narthex this weekend, please consider downloading, printing, and signing the letter with your own address and mailing it.
 
If you have questions about these letters or this coordinated effort for our brothers and sisters in Haiti, please email Tom Kloc tjkloc@comcast.net or call him at 301-682-5369.
 
Thank you for your participation.
