2019 Partnership Cange Symposium
The World Mission Committee of our diocese and St. John's are hosting a meeting of those involved or interested in our work in Cange, on the Central Plateau of Haiti.
Join us Friday evening at 7:30 for dessert and a screening of Bending the Arc, a Sundance festival film that follows the lives of Jim Yong Kim, Paul Farmer, and Ophelia Dahl. As medical students, they came together in Cange, a squatter settlement in Haiti and became determined to provide the same world-class level of medical care there they would expect for their own families. Reaching far beyond the issue of health care, Bending the Arc shows how moral imagination, strategy, and sheer will together can change the trajectory of the world, bending the arc of the moral universe closer to justice. Donations will be invited.
Saturday sessions begin at 9 AM and explore the many dimensions of the mission in Cange, including literacy, agriculture, medicine, spiritual life, and economic development. Guests from Haiti will be present. Lunch and snacks are included in the $15 registration fee. You can attend for all or part of the day.
