This Saturday, January 31st, in a wonderful collaborative partnership between the Mission Opportunity 2015 and the ECMN Children’s Ministry cohort, an incredible gathering has been planned!
The Carnaval and Worship will take place at St. Mark’s Cathedral from 2-6pm or so. Join fellow Episcopalians and friends from around Minnesota and Haiti to commemorate the 5-year anniversary of the earthquake, celebrate partnerships and relationships, and of course, share in some wonderful Haitian food.
The schedule of the afternoon looks like this:
2pm: Family fun time! Create shoebox floats, decorate masks and learn Creole songs for the procession and worship.
4pm: Participate in a vibrant worship service including music and stories. The offering will go to Mission Opportunity 2015: Engaging the Spirit in Haiti.
5:15pm: Enjoy a light Haitian themed meal and fellowship time with visiting Haitian clergy and nonprofit partners.
As you can see, this is going to be a fabulous opportunity for all ages to learn and build relationships with our Haitian brothers and sisters and with each other. Everyone is invited!
