United with Mary standing at the foot of the cross, we Marianites of Holy Cross, are apostolic religious, women of prayer and compassion. Our mission, energized by our life in community, is to incarnate the love and compassion of Jesus Christ. Called to be a prophetic presence in an ever-changing world, we resolutely stand with those who are excluded
In this year of our 175 Anniversary, we choose to highlight MARY GATE OF HEAVEN ORPHANAGE, Cap-Haitian, HAITI ... a land marked by poverty and ecological degradation, but also by faith and resilience. Marianite Sister Kathleen Nealon ministers in collaboration with the Sisters of Holy Cross. As a Social Worker, Sr. Kathleen offers a variety of services from "play therapy" to interventions to ensure the holistic well-being of her young clients. The orphanage provides clothing, housing, meals, education and faith formation for their children of varying ages. Your thoughtfulness will be appreciated by the kids and the sisters, guaranteeing a place in their prayers. Thank you and God bless you!
