Tomorrow’s chapel will be different from the usual—we will be celebrating a very special occasion. On behalf of the Rt. Rev. Zache Duracin of the Diocese of Haiti, the Rt. Rev. James Mathes will ordain Guimond Pierre Louis into the Sacred Order of Priests.

Coming to us from Haiti, Guimond worked as an accountant before responding to the call of the ministry and beginning his preparation for the priesthood. Since starting his seminary education, he founded the Jean Wilfrid Albert Foundation, whose mission is providing education and empowerment to the disenfranchised. He has a deep passion for peace building and reconciliation within the Church and the community at large. Guimond will be a great gift to his diocese.

This is the joyful, solemn celebration of an event preceded by careful selection, discernment, and study. Please come to honor Guimond on the culmination of his years of preparation to serve God in accordance with the calling on his life.

The Very Rev. Ian S. Markham, Ph.D.
Dean and President
