On Sunday, March 3, Bishop Pierre Whalon will make his last official visit to the Cathedral. This service will be a special celebration and will include the ordination of Jean Dumond Chavanne. Jean Dumond came to the Convocation as an ordinand of the Diocese of Haiti, currently under Bishop Zaché Duracin. He was later accepted into our ordination process and is sponsored by the Cathedral.
During his time in France, Jean Dumond has completed both a master in pedagogy as well as theological studies at the Institut catholique and the Institut protestant de Paris.
Dumond and wife Rolande are active parishioners at the cathedral. Dumond and his family hope one day to return to their homeland and serve the Church as priest and teacher.
