Paul Chapman, professor of humanities, joined a delegation from the Peace and Justice Initiative and St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church for a peace education conference in Jacmel, Haiti. The group set out to teach conflict mediation and resolution skills to members of the Diocese and the larger community in the Jacmel region. He learned that in the face of unimaginable hardships — both natural and manmade — the resilient maintain a hopeful belief, “Ayiti pap peri!” (Haiti will not perish!).
