ABOUT SISTER LUVIA JOSEPH
Sr. Luvia is a native of Haiti. She began her religious life under the direction of a Redemptorist Priest who was serving as a missionary from Belgium. She started her vocation not knowing the scope of the work that God would lead her to. With the permission of her Bishops, she's founded an orphanage, schools and Religious orders. Together they work to bring Christ to the people of Haiti, both spiritually and physically.
Our Lady of Perpetual Help Orphanage: This girl's orphanage was founded in 1976, and was relocated twice due to the earthquake of 2010 & Hurricane Sandy in 2012. In 2016, with the help of many benefactors, the orphans took residence in their first permanent home in six years. The home is safe, but is in need of many repairs.
St. Alphonse de Liguore School: Founded in 1984 and relocated following the earthquake of 2010, which claimed the lives of 150 students. This school has morning and afternoon sessions, educating and feeding over 2500 students daily as funds and supplies allow.
Notre-Dame Educatrice: This school was founded in 1997 and is located in Miragoane. It is the smaller of the two schools, having less than 500 students.
News from Haiti
"My mission is threefold: I hope to feed people's souls, bodies and minds. It may be necessary to feed their bodies before they'll accept food for their souls or an education. I hope to help the people to be better equipped to gain food for their souls and bodies, and that once nourished, they will help many others in Haiti"
WHAT WE DO
Whatsoever You Do is an apostolate formed by a core group of members from St. Joseph and St. Pius X Parishes. After nearly twenty years of collaboration between the parishes to support Sr. Luvia and her missions, these individuals recognized that the scope of the mission projects would require extensive support in order to be achieved. Whatsoever You Do was formed in the hope of gaining that support.
