Do you have a heart for Haiti?
Join The Diocese of West Tennessee for a unique opportunity to show your love to children with disabilities at St. Vincent’s Center for Handicapped Children in Port-au-Prince. Hosted by Bishop Don Johnson and West Tennessee Haiti Partnership (WTHP), enjoy an evening of music, Haitian food and a live auction all in support of this exceptional community of children who are blind, deaf, and have other various disabilities.

Meet Father Frantz Cole, Priest in Charge at St. Vincent’s, and hear first-hand about the children who will directly benefit from your generous gifts. Hear from Dr. Susan Nelson (St. Mary's) and Medical Director of WTHP, as she shares about the essential medical care being provided during bi-annual mission trips. Finally, hear from Rev. Drew Woodruff (St. Mary's), Spiritual Leader of WTHP, about the impact we are making on these children’s lives and how we are, in turn, blessed by them. Learn how you can be a part of these life-changing ministries.

100% of the proceeds will go directly to the programs of WTHP, bringing medical teams, medicine, food, potable water and other essentials to St. Vincent’s. Visit for details about the artwork, speakers, and additional ways to support the ministry.
