St. Thomas University Joins Haiti Relief Efforts

In the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew, St. Thomas University has joined with the Archdiocese of Miami and the Diocese of Port-de-Paix, Haiti, in supporting immediate relief, as well as long-term rebuilding efforts, in Miami’s heavily-damaged sister-diocese of Port-de-Paix, Haiti. St. Thomas University is coordinating with Amor en Accion (the 40-year steward of the Archdiocese of Miami/Port-de-Paix sister-diocese relationship) in this response. Individuals wishing to help can donate at the link below. All donations are tax-exempt, and 100% of received funds will go directly to relief efforts in the NW. Donors will receive confirmation of their donation, and will receive updates detailing the efforts as they are underway.


A mass for the people of Haiti, Cuba and other impacted areas was offered at 8 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 9, at the Chapel of Saint Anthony, St. Thomas University. Fr. Jean Joseph, a current STU Student, celebrated the mass. Fr. Joseph’s family is from Jeremie, Haiti.
