School building in St. Paul's Parish, Beaudin Jean Pierre. St. James assisted with the purchase
In the past several years St. James’ has raised funds to help support St. Paul’s school in Beaudin Jean Pierre, Haiti. Our funds have purchased the building that is used as the school/church, helped buy a truck that carries supplies to the school, provided lunches for the students and helped pay a minimal salary to the teachers. A group of St. James, Clinton, parish members visited September 2017 to strenghten our personal relationship with member of St. Paul's parish.
Our most recent project was to help Pere Fred put a new roof on St. Matthias in Camp-Perrin.
