2018 CRS Rice Bowl Kick-Off!
January 23, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us for the 2018 CRS Rice Bowl Kick-Off on Tuesday, January 23 from 7-8:30pm at the Chancery. We will be joined by Cassandra Bissainthe, from CRS Haiti, who serves with Church Partnerships and Capacity Strengthening.
Meet Cassandra. A native of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, she spent many of her formative years in the United States—New York, New Jersey, and Florida, where she graduated from Florida International University with a degree in international relations. But her heart never left her home, Haiti. Despite fleeing with her family from the island nation during a time when killings and kidnappings were common, she was determined to return, to work to build a better Haiti.
Cassandra says that she decided to work with CRS because she wanted to work for an organization that encompassed the mission and values of helping the poor and most vulnerable, and to her, CRS does that.
That’s where Catholic Relief Services, and our partners, have been able to make a real difference. Cassandra, in her work with CRS, gets to see that difference up close and personal. From hurricane
relief to education programming, Cassandra’s experience in Haiti runs deep.
“It is truly amazing to see the results of the work of so many,” she says. “These results are contributing
to a much larger objective and mission: to make this world a better place.”
