HAITIAN METHODISTS CELEBRATE BICENTENARY

(WCC)

The Methodist Church of Haiti is celebrating its 200th anniversary. Founded as a mission in 1817, it is the oldest Protestant church in the Caribbean nation. Special events in Haiti’s capital, Port-au-Prince, in early February drew attention to the church’s history and its contributions to the country.

A worship service held on Sunday February 12 to mark the bicentenary drew an estimated 1,000 people. In a rousing sermon broadcast live from the Methodist Church at Bird College, Bishop Gesner Paul called for government reform and an end to corruption.
