Recently our mail included the annual status report on the child our family supports through Chalice, formerly Christian Child Care International. She lives in Haiti, the poorest and most densely populated country in the Western Hemisphere.
Our family learned about Chalice, a Canadian Catholic organization, several years ago when a visiting priest spoke at Mass about its projects. Chalice's mission is to "support local initiatives in developing countries, primarily through the sponsorship of children and elderly in need." In doing so, it gives witness to Christ's love and provides hope for the future.
