Haitian Churches in the DC Area

The U.S. cities most known for their Haitian immigrant communities are New Orleans, New York, Miami, and Boston (See Haitian ministries here or Creole church search here), but the Washington area also has a strong Haitian contingent. Feel free to add to the list below if I missed a Haitian church community. If you want to get to know your Haitian neighbors, contact one of these churches! In no particular order...

2 Prayer Gatherings This Week

Thursday 3/4, 7-8pm. Riverside Baptist Church hosts a prayer service for the poor. 680 Eye St. SW.

Saturday 3/6, 7-9pm, Christ our Shepherd Church hosts a city-wide prayer gathering to pray for the District (and environs), its needs, and God’s activity here. Special foci include a local ministry called Urban Bridge Builders and prayer requests from DCPD. 801 North Carolina Ave. SE, near the Eastern Market Metro.

I went to a city-wide prayer night at Christ our Shepherd with my pastor last November, and was strengthened by the faith of some of my fellow pray-ers, and encouraged by the unity of the body of Christ on display there.
