NEW YORK, NY (August 15, 2012) - In an exclusive interview with WorldPriest TV director Niall Kennedy, at the recent Eucharistic Congress, Father Frank Rouler from the Diocese of Norwich Connecticut shares with us how American Catholics are making a difference in the lives of Haitians after the January 2010, 7.0, earthquake that killed a reported 350,000 Haitians in a country that is 70% Catholic.

Father Rouler tells us how 15 Parishes in Connecticut are twinning with 15 Parishes, in Porto Prince Haiti, to assist in the healing process two years after the massive destruction that also killed the Haitian Arch Bishop,11 Priests, 17 Seminarians and that 60 Churches were destroyed.

This WorldPriest TV interview is an insider report as to how Catholics are working together in helping the recovery and educational needs that the impoverished government has difficulty delivering.While working under extreme conditions Father Rouler describes a key message that is being communicated by the Catholic recovery teams;

Our destiny is to be with God to grow spiritually,lets keep our focus on Jesus Christ for he is our wealth, our treasure, Heaven is our destiny, it's important to grow spiritually, that we are to use the things of this life for our wellbeing and to reach out to help others in need.

This interview goes Live on August 15, 2012.
