Fr. Rick Frechette, CP, D.O. was born on August 14, 1953, and serving others was to become his lifelong calling. He was ordained a Passionist priest in 1979 and helped found, with Fr. Wasson, the first NPH home in Haiti. As witness to the tremendous poverty, suffering and injustices there, he went to medical school, co-founded St. Damien Pediatric Hospital, and has spent the rest of his life in Haiti caring for the sick, the poor, the assaulted, the abandoned.
