Father Bourdeau visits Richmond, Hinche Scholars attend “Manje” Gala

September 26, 2011

This weekend was a busy one for the Hinche Scholars, as they welcomed Father Bourdeau as part of his annual visit to Richmond. Pere Bourdeau was in town as part of the twinning relationship between his community in Hinche and the churches of St. Bridget and Cathedral of Sacred Heart in Richmond.

The Hinche Scholars had the chance to attend the annual “Manje” Gala, a dinner/auction fundraiser which raises money for primary school children in Carissade, Haiti. The four students from Hinche enjoyed meeting many Richmonders who care about Haiti.

On Sunday, the students attended multiple church services and helped translate for Father Bourdeau as he greeted parishoners before and after the masses.

Although they were a bit tired from the previous night's festivities, the four Hinche Scholars joined Father Bourdeau and helped to greet and translate after several masses on Sunday
