Archangel Airborne, a Catholic nonprofit that has partnered with St. Peter's Parish on the last two trips to Haiti to visit our twinned parish, Notre Dame D'Altagrace in Cap Haitien, is about to release a documentary which includes a lot of footage from our recently concluded trip. Please view the clip below featuring our parish's own Peter Sloan addressing the parish of Notre Dame D'Altagrace on behalf of St. Peter's parish.

[The following is an edited transcript of an e-mail from Archangel Medical Mission team member Stu Hirsch, who is one of the pilots coordinating with Peter Sloan. Explanatory/editorial notes in italics.]
From Stu Hirsch, 14 Nov 2012, 5am: At 0800hrs [13 Nov] , Mike and I returned to the Les Cayes aerodrome to depart for Cap Hatien where we had planned to rendezvous with Pete Sloan to review his team's clinic operations and location. The flight conditions were optimal and we were able to make the 127NM direct trip in 53 minutes - far surpassing the typical 12-16 hours for ground transit between Les Cayes and Cap Hatien... Vehicular road trauma in Haiti with mass-casualty accidents is quite prevalent and with little recourse for trauma care, other than in Port au Prince.
