Saint Mark’s School and Saint Mark’s Church are proud to partner with Ste. Marguerite, a school in Latournelle, Haiti. The church and school’s relationship with Ste. Marguerite began in 2011, shortly after the devastating 2010 earthquake. Pastor Carri Patterson Grindon and Doreen Oleson, Head of School at the time, visited Haiti and witnessed the community’s needs firsthand. Since then, Saint Mark’s has taken an active role in providing much-needed assistance to our partner school and other students in Haiti. Throughout the school year, our Student Leadership Council and sixth-grade students lead fundraising efforts to support this cause.
The need for the supportive partnerships with Epsicopal schools remains critical to the long-term rebuilding of Haiti following the earthquake and considering the current state of the country. We are committed to continuing our support and making a positive impact on the lives of the students and community in Haiti.
