In spite of recent bad weather, seventeen Seton Catholic Central students, teachers and volunteers have gotten out of the Southern Tier and are in Haiti for their latest mission to aid two orphanages. The group will also volunteer at Mother Teresa’s Children’s Hospital and run a medical clinic.

Catholic Schools President Richard Bucci says the contingent managed to leave Seton at 1:30 a.m. Monday, February 13, the same day a big snow storm closed most area schools.  They arrived in Haiti at 3 p.m.

The group is working in the impoverished country until Saturday, February 18.
