HSLC's Partnership with VOH

Holy Spirit Church has over a 20 year relationship with the Village of Hope (VoH) in Ganthier, Haiti. The VoH is sponsored by the Lazarus Project which is a group of over sixty Lutheran Churches and various other churches and organizations throughout the world. These groups unite to sponsor 650 preschool through high school students; support a community health care center at the VoH; and conduct several yearly mission trips to the VoH.  To learn more about the Village of Hope, log on to: www.villageofhopehaiti.org . You will find a downloadable brochure. This brochure contains information about the Village of Hope/Lazarus Project and explains various ways you can support this important ministry.
