School holds Mass for Haiti quake victims

Posted: Updated:

Hundreds of students from a New Jersey high school just across the Rockland County border came together Thursday during a memorial Mass for those who perished in Haiti.

Students and faculty at Don Bosco Prep in Ramsey, N.J., prayed for fellow members of the Salesian Catholic order who were buried under the rubble at St. John Bosco School in Port-au-Prince.

"It's tough to be able to see my own people going through something so horrible," says senior Valcy Etienne, of Stony Point.

Students at Don Bosco Prep are now organizing fundraisers to help the Salesian order in Haiti rebuild.
