So it is that, with pride and gratitude, we the Sisters of Holy Cross, the collaborators, friends and the population of Pilate wanted to underscore this outstanding anniversary within the framework of a lively celebration. For this special occasion we had the honor and privilege of welcoming our own Sister Yanick Sylfradin, CSC, now General Councilor of the Sisters of Holy Cross, Sister Willnette Pierre, CSC, Regional Animator of the Sisters of Holy Cross in Haiti. We were also happy to welcome many religious of other congregations.
This celebration highlighted the collaboration of all who are presently working in this mission along with others who shared their professional andpersonal contributions. It was also an opportunity to celebrate the successes and the important improvements added to the inhabitants (Pilatois) of the neighboring zones.
Eucharist was celebrated by his Excellence Monsignor Yves-Marie Pean, Bishop of Gonaives, a religious of Holy Cross and "son" of Pilate. On Sunday, January 7, 2018 it was a day of happiness for our entire Holy Cross Family along with that of L'Espérance de Pilate.

In 2017 we celebrated the 175th Anniversary of the founding of the three feminine branches of the Congregation of Holy Cross. Our hearts overflow with gratitude and humility to the God of our Yesterdays, Todays and Tomorrows, and to our Founder, Basil Moreau, who has entrusted us with the mission of "Liberation through Education."
