Haïti

Between 1972 and 2002, four SMB confreres worked in the dioceses of Port-de-Paix, Cap Haïtien and Gonaïves. The two priest-missionaries were engaged in integral pastoral work, while the two brother-missionaries offered their craft skills to the service of craftsmen’s schools and the construction site. A brother missionary lost his life in a tragic swimming accident in 1989.

In Haïti there was close co-operation between SMB and the community of lay missionaries (GLM) based in Villars-sur-Glâne.
