The Diocese of Haiti was established 1861 and is the largest diocese in the Episcopal Church, with over 86,000 members as of 2010. Since over 80% of Haitians live below the poverty line and because much of the country’s infrastructure was destroyed in the 2010 earthquake, this diocese faces grave physical challenges unmatched on the American mainland.
