Fr. André Sylvestré, a diocesan priest for 39 years from the Archdiocese of Cap-Haïtien, Haiti, is the visionary priest behind the Our Lady of Perpetual Help Orphanage.Fr. André is forever grateful for the many miracles that God has brought into his life. At an early age, his education was in danger of being interrupted. However, he wrote a letter to the Sisters that operated the Holy Cross School in Haiti and was granted a “miraculous” full scholarship so he could continue his education. After this schooling, he was recommended for the seminary in Port-Au-Prince. Fr. Sylvestré was introduced to the founding members of the OLPH Haitian Orphanage Foundation in 2009 when he was a priest-in-residence at St Mary Catholic Church while pursuing a Master’s degree in clinical psychology at Ball State University.
