Mission Statement

Saint Mary Cathedral Catholic Parish of Lafayette, Indiana has been a member of the Parish Twinning Program of the Americas (PTPA) since 1999.

We are dedicated to cooperation in the growth and development of our sister Parish, Saint Joseph Catholic Church of Pendus, Haiti, and the associated ‘Chapel’ Communities of Berard, Kayamit, Savanne Carre, Myombe and Masak.

We make visits and maintain communication. 

We stand in prayerful solidarity.

We provide resources and support in religious, educational, medical, and economic areas.

We promote awareness among Catholics and non-Catholics of  injustices we encounter and  heed the gospel call to respond concretely.
