A significant video offering a first-hand tour of the devastated Holy Trinity Cathedral in Port Au Prince, Haiti, is available on the Episcopal Church website here:

Presenting the video tour is the Rev. Joseph Constant, Episcopal Church Special Coordinator for Haiti, who gives a step-by-step look at the destruction and the sad remains of the Cathedral. On the recently taped video, Haitian-born Constant adds personal insights into the situation and addresses why the rebuilding of the Holy Trinity Cathedral complex is so critical for the people of Haiti.

“Nothing tells a story like moving images,” noted Mike Collins, director of digital media. “To see what remains of the Cathedral is heartbreaking. The only way people are going to understand how dire the situation is in Haiti actually you need to see it.”

The three —minute video, with panoramic views of the remaining rubble, is part of the appeal to help rebuild the once beautiful and now destroyed Holy Trinity Cathedral in downtown Port-Au-Prince. The Rebuild Our Church in Haiti campaign is a grassroots, churchwide appeal to begin to rebuild Holy Trinity Cathedral, which is the spiritual and cultural heart of the Episcopal Diocese of Haiti. Congregations interested in participating in the appeal will find more information at

The video is also available in HD on Vimeo at and on the Episcopal Church facebook page

The Diocese of Haiti is the largest in the Episcopal Church. The January 2010 earthquake leveled the churches and diocesan facilities, including Holy Trinity Cathedral and facilities on the cathedral site: Holy Trinity Music School, Holy Trinity Professional School, and the primary and secondary schools.
