Welcome to HADOB:
Lay People United For Jesus
- Layik Angaje Pou Jezu
Layik Angaje wants to be a cohesive presence in the Haitian faith
community and be instruments in helping our brothers and sisters to
remain connected to and engaged in their faith.
Lay People United for Jesus is a group of Haitian Americans desiring the betterment of their communities. It is a lay catholic grass root movement springing out of the disaster that hit our beloved country of Haiti.
In Creole we call ourselves “Layik Angaje Pou Jezu”. Our motto is taken from Acts 4:32.
Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ reached out and embraced all people – accepting all persons for who they were. Jesus then stimulated them to think and act differently. To live a true Catholic life involves frequent communication with God through prayer; studying scripture, regular reception of the Eucharist, and living in fellowship with others.
The Acts of the Apostles describes how Christians in the early Church gathered to celebrate the Eucharist. Like them we are called to promote communion, peace, social justice, and solidarity. Paul’s letter to the Corinthians indicates the Church is a body composed of many parts that work in harmony.
We are here to collaborate with our church to serve the spiritual and social needs of all. Our hope is that all we encounter will seek intimate knowledge of the teachings of Jesus so that we can each understand and live out fully our baptismal promises. Together we can make a difference in the lives of our brothers and sisters by sharing Christ.
