Living Word Anglican Mission of Haiti


If you would like to donate to the mission in Haiti please visit KGI Global to make your donation. 


Haiti is located on the western third of the island of Hispaniola and is a mountainous region. The population is made up of close-knit families. Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere with 80% of the population living in poverty. Over half of the population practices Voodoo.*


Through diocesan connections ADLW is excited to partner with the Reverend Jocelyn Joseph and our Anglican brothers and sisters in Haiti and form the Living Word Mission of Haiti. We will help to oversee eleven congregations meeting throughout Haiti:


  • St. Paul’s of Gonaïves
  • St. George of Hinche
  • Good Samaritan of Marmelade
  • St. Mattieu Port-Margot
  • La Resurrection of Cap-Haitien
  • St. Mattias of Hatte-Rocher
  • Mont Carmel of Port-au-Prince
  • St. Augustine of Cayes
  • St. Jean Baptiste of Cayes
  • St. Jacques of Verretes
  • St. Michel Archange et tous les anges of Gros-Morne

Prayer for Haiti

Heavenly Father, you sent your Son among us to proclaim the kingdom of God in the cities, towns, villages, and lonely places. Behold and visit, we pray the nation of Haiti. Renew the bonds of charity that uphold civic life. Send honest and able leaders. Deliver them from poverty, prejudice, and oppression, that peace may prevail with righteousness, and justice with mercy. And the last, bring all your children to your Holy City, the new Jerusalem, where we shall know perfect unity and peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
