The Clean Water project began at St. John’s, Roseville in 2012 when the members of the Daughters of the King began raising money to build a well in Haiti. Some $5000.00 was collected and then relationships were developed with Haitian churches. This lead to a partnership with the Episcopal church St. Augustine, Rocklin.

Now funds are needed for a 12 member team from the two local churches to travel to Haiti in November to work with the organization Living Water International, as the well location is selected and the Haitian community partnership develops to address life changing opportunities for improved health, hygiene and other concerns.

“This gives us all an opportunity to share, grow and live together,” remarked Father Cliff. “Come help us turn wine into water.”

Besides food and wine, there will also be an auction. All this and more at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Roseville! Tickets are limited. Please call 916-786-6911 for reservations.

For additional information, please contact Father Cliff at 916-786-6911.
