The Parish Twinning Program has been shipping humanitarian goods to Haiti since 1994. Millions of dollars in medicines, medical supplies and equipment, generators, solar panels, food, school supplies and much more have been donated by U.S. parishes to their twin parishes in Haiti. We gather and forward the goods for our program’s parishes. The shipment has originated since 2002 out of Nashville, Tennessee. National Coordinator Pat Rehovsky from St. Ignatius Church in Antioch, Tennessee has volunteered untold hours in overseeing the organization and shipping of the containers. Some 75 churches, organizations and other groups participate in each shipment, while approximately the same number of parishes and projects in Haiti receive goods.
Our typical annual shipment involves approximately four to seven 40-foot high-cube containers, and it is generally sent in the springtime. A collection period will take place over a two-week period, and the third week is used for loading the containers. Hundreds of parishes, communities and projects in Haiti have benefited from the dedicated work of the Sea Container Coordinator and the many volunteers.
