Haiti - Religion : The Catholic Bishops of Haiti oppose the «Lutheran Church of Unity»
In a note, Catholic Bishops the Episcopal Conference of Haiti (CEH) warn the faithful to stay away from the "Lutheran Church of Unity".

"'Do not be carried away by all kinds of strange teachings. It is good for our hearts to be strengthened by grace' (Hebrews 13 verse 9)

Your complaints have come to us for the shaking that your faith is experiencing today because of what you see.

For some time now you have seen people wearing the sacred garments of priests and bishops, having miter and crook, performing ceremonies similar to Catholic celebrations, such as mass and the ordination of priests. You still see them using the missal and other Catholic liturgical props.

It is a duty for us Bishops to make light for you. We declare that those who claim to be the 'Lutheran Church of Unity' are not part of the Catholic, Apostolic, Roman Church. They want to throw trouble in your mind.

We ask our faithful to take care. Let them be careful so that they can discover the trick of these people. That they do not go to their ceremonies even if they resemble the Catholic celebrations. May they not solicit from them any service with regard to the sacraments or sacramentals (baptism, communion, marriage, funeral, etc...) Therefore we do not recognize their baptismal certificates.

Moreover, we ask our priests not to accept that they come to concelebrate in our churches and not to concelebrate with them in their places of worship. May they make sure to enlighten and strengthen the faith of the faithful.

We exhort you to live in the joy and light of Easter and to remain always attached to the directives and principles of your Catholic, Apostolic, Roman Church."
