Jeremiah 18: 1-6:
The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: “Come, go down to the potter’s house, and there I will let you hear my words.” So I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was working at his wheel. The vessel he was making of clay was spoiled in the potter’s hand, and he reworked it into another vessel, as seemed good to him.
Then the word of the Lord came to me: Can I not do with you, O house of Israel, just as this potter has done? says the Lord. Just like the clay in the potter’s hand, so are you in my hand, O house of Israel. Show more

•...Site Director, Wendell Alphonse, of the St. Dominique site in Haiti responds to some great questions raised during the Chalice Lenten Mission:
• What kind of follow up will Jordalienne [from the Lenten Mission video] receive once she has finished high school and is ready to leave Saint Dominique? People are concerned for her future, since she is still so young.
Wendell: We are working on a new program spearheaded by a Chalice US supporter and a very dedicated group of supporters from Purdue University. The support provided to the orphans who have graduated and who are preparing to leave the site supports them beyond the normal Chalice sponsorship program. So far, we have funded two children for the program. This program is open for any orphans who have graduated from high school but is always pending additional funding is available. Juliana, one child at the orphanage, is in the process of applying. This program is also accessible for Jordalienne.
• If the children do not wish to go further in their education after secondary school, is Saint Dominique able to help them find employment?
Wendell: We encourage the young adults to go to a trade school and learn something that can be helpful for them in seeking future employment.
• What is the process when taking in children who are currently living on the streets? How is it decided who to take in and who not to?
Wendell: Once a child arrives at the orphanage, a psychologist accompanies the child all the way through the process until they adjust to their new life at the orphanage. Generally, whether a child is accepted depends more on timing and availability. If a child cannot be accepted because of space limitations, Sr. Elida would work with social services and within her network of connections with other orphanages to find a space for the child.
