Our Cathedral Parish Nurse E.A. Cole has been chosen as “2017 CHM Faith Community Nurse of the Year!” Norton Healthcare defines a Parish Nurse as a “registered professional nurse who is actively licensed in a given state and who serves as a member of the staff of a faith community. The faith community nurse promotes wholeness of the faith community, its groups, families, and individual members through the practice of nursing as defined by that state's nurse practice act in jurisdiction in which the faith community nurse practices.” E.A. was chosen from the many outstanding Parish Nurses from our local community to receive this award.  E.A.’s faith filled dedication to the Cathedral, it’s ministries and community outreach, especially to those whose circumstances prevent them from being able to attend the Cathedral is an amazing gift to us.Thank you E.A. for bringing this honor to our Cathedral Parish!

Tek4Kids, Inc. (Gary and Cathy Boice’s nonprofit) uses education and technology to break the poverty cycle in Haiti.  They provide existing schools in Haiti with clean water, electricity, computers and teachers.  Children share clean water with their families, reducing instances of cholera and waterborne illnesses. Students that receive computer skills from the Tek4Kids program will be able to find much more advanced jobs despite the high unemployment rate in the area. To learn more about Tek4Kids, visit www.tek4kids.org

Much has happened and many people have been in and out of Jeremie since my last trip last September.  I'll not attempt to catch up ... just talk about this trip.
As usual, lots of planning and packing decisions, middle of the night alarm to get up and head for the airport.  Don Kavanaugh drives from Jeffersonville to my house in the Highlands, I toss my bags in his car ... he's already got 4 Tek4Kids bags in the trunk that we loaded last week plus his stuff.  Then we drive to Jack Lydon's house.  Jack offered to take us to the airport where we'll meet up with Gary Boice.  Then Jack will bring Don's car back to his place till we return.  Jack goes beyond on everything.   Quite a friend!

The primary focus Don and I have is to upgrade the classroom and teacher laptops to Windows 10.  We've upgraded numerous computers in Louisville since last July.  We've had a variety of experiences, none bad.  We've done the on-line upgrade, we've used thumb drives loaded with Windows 10 and Don has a server configured to push the upgrade to clients.  In Jeremie the on-line upgrade is last choice because Internet speed is not what we see in the US ... but we expect to use all 3 methods ... and maybe we'll come up with Plan D on the fly!  Got to be creative in Ayiti.

Gary has at least a gazillion things on his list.  As usual, there's more on the lists than we'll ever get to and things not on the list that we'll have to address. 

We do plan to sit down with Fr Marc-Arthur, pastor of Cathedral St Louis, to see how things are going.  Although most of our trips relate to Tek4Kids, we always find time to pay attention to our Sister Parish.

So bear with me ... I'll add things as time permits ... I hope to have pictures to share as we go along.

And ... many have said they will keep us in their prayers.  It's hard to beat that!

Peace, Dave
