Our honoree. Happy Birthday!
We are celebrating the man who started it all and keeps us inspired daily! Because of Pere Bruno’s vision, life has changed for tens of thousands of people in northeast Haiti over the past 50 years. Here’s just a glimpse of what he has accomplished in the past 20:
A pre-K through grade 13 school (Ecole St. Barthélémy) was built in 2002, now educating, feeding, and nurturing over 1,000 kids each year!
A clinic (Clinique Espérance et Vie) was created in 2009 giving convenient access to health services ranging from eye care to prenatal visits to life-saving medications. Over 12,000 patients are seen annually!
An NGO (Espérance et Vie) was formed in 2010 to bring humanitarian services to the community of Terrier Rouge. Led by the calm and steady presence of Pere Bruno, the NGO responds quickly to challenges affecting their community - natural disasters such as floods and earthquakes; public health threats such as cholera and COVID-19; and destabilizing situations such as political unrest and crippling inflation.

A Humble Servant
Pere Bruno is a man of God. As an Episcopal priest, he has served communities in Haiti and the Dominican Republic his entire life, feeding the poor and hungry, caring for the sick, ministering to the struggling. The center of his ministry, however, has always been education, having built 5 schools in northern Haiti, from primary schools to vocational schools, including École St. Barthélémy, located in his father’s hometown of Terrier Rouge.
Our organization, Bethlehem Ministry, was created to support Pere Bruno’s vision, a partnership that has thrived for 35 years and expanded beyond education to include healthcare, environmental restoration, and humanitarian aid. Despite his many successes, Pere Bruno remains a humble servant of God answering the call every single day. Bethlehem Ministry is blessed to support him in these good works.
