Haiti 2015 - Day 6 (26th)

On Sunday morning we attended a packed Mass in the chapel of St. Louis de Gonzague school. Many of our children from the camp joined us, a few as altar servers. Aaron and myself got involved in the music liturgy, leading 2 worship songs (I Will Worship + Lord I Lift Your Name On High) for the Offertory and after Communion respectively and the Lamb of God.

Sunday lunch saw us profiting from the purchases made at the beach the day before: fresh crab + fish.

In the afternoon Frère Charles took us up into the mountains that overlook Port-au-Prince...

... including a visit to the ruins of Fort Jacques, a 200 year-old fort that was built just after Haiti one its independence from France to guard against any possible further colonial invasion.
