Ministry in Gandou, Haiti
        Gandou Ministry

​​​​St. Anthony Catholic Parish in Morris, IN and St. Louis Catholic
​Parish in ​Batesville, IN are co-twinning with their sister parish,
​St. Francis Xavier ​Catholic Parish in Gandou, a rural area in the
​mountains of south-central ​Haiti. St. Anthony and St. Louis
​parishes are members of the Parish Twinning Program of ​America   
​(for more information about the twinning program ​click here).

​​​Since January 2006 for St. Anthony Catholic ​​Parish ​and June 2015 ​for
​St. Louis Catholic Parish, they have ​been ​helping to provide medical ​care
​for the people of Gandou, ​Haiti. ​ There are ​around 10,000 people ​living in the area. The ​area is ​very remote and the ​people have very little ​access to medical care. The nearest doctor is a ​five-hour walk and the ​nearest hospital is a six-hour walk. It is very ​difficult for sick patients to ​reach care. Many people in the area suffer ​needlessly, and some even die, ​from easily treatable conditions.
