On Sunday, 54 students graduated from the Ecole Normale de Papaye, in their way to new lives as teachers in Haiti. The day started with Mass, which Bishop Desinorde celebrated. The graduation ceremony was packed with family and friends who came to celebrate with the graduates. There were songs, speeches, a beautiful poetry reading, and then, the handing out of the diplomas. Congratulations to all the graduates!
