Every year for more than 20 years, Messiah has raised funds for Epiphanie School in L’Acul, Haiti. Once again this year we are requesting donations for Epiphanie School. Your contributions ensure education for the children of our partner parish. Funds are used for teachers’ salaries in grades kindergarten through sixth. Any amount is welcome! Checks may be made out to Messiah with “Haiti Scholarship” in the memo and you can drop them in the plate on Sunday or mail them in. Our goal this year is to raise $17,000.
Here is a detailed map about how to navigate getting to the picnic on Sunday, September 10. You will be crossing the Ford Bridge into Minneapolis, continuing on 46th Street, turning left on Minnehaha Avenue, going through the roundabout at the Parkway, and veering off to the right when three quarters through the roundabout onto Minnehaha Parkway, turn right on 46th Ave., and stay right to get to the parking area near Site F.
