Jean-Claude Romario

In school late yesterday morning, Jean-Claude Romario (a day student in our First Grade) felt faint and passed out. He fell to the floor and hit his head hard. Doctor Jacob and Nurse Rose-Marthe were called to the scene. They transported little Jean-Claude, 8 years old, from the classroom and brought him to our clinic. He regained consciousness but could only mumble. He was sent to the general hospital in town where he was seen by a doctor, prescribed medication and admitted to the pediatric ward. Jean-Claude died at 4:00 AM today. Please keep him , his family, his friends and teachers in your prayers.


  1. Father Marc, I am in tears and my heart is heavy. I really don't know what else to say. He, his family, and all of you are in my prayers. I love you all.

  2. Fr. Marc - We at Cross are all very, very saddened about your loss. This just illustrates what we in the USA take or granted everyday - food and available medical care. Do you have any idea what made him faint? Was it hunger or was he sick?
