Bishop Jean Zache Duracin of the Episcopal Diocese of Haiti will be among clergy and lay leaders attending the 2007 Haiti Connection Conference April 23-25 at the Wyndham Miami Airport Hotel in Florida.
The primary focus of the conference will be the mission and ministry of Episcopal and Presbyterian outreach efforts, with emphasis on health care, development, and education.
Since the May 2005 gathering in Miami Beach "much has happened [and] much remains to be done," conference planners say.
Presentations on health care in Haiti, institutional church involvement, and primary and secondary education will be made by speakers including Duracin; Abagail Nelson, vice president for Program at Episcopal Relief and Development (ERD); Pix Mahler, Presbyterian Church USA; and Don Tetlock, Church World Service.
Registration for the three-day event is $275 which includes the cost of meeting rooms, five meals, and coffee breaks, and helps to defray the cost of bringing the Haitian delegation to Miami.
