This article provides rich ethnographic description of the Feast of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in June 2002 at Notre Dame d'Haiti Catholic Church in Miami, one of the most important public events in Haitian immigrant religion. By comparing the Patronal Feast in Miami with its counterpart in Haiti, I challenge scholarly exaggerations about the degree to which diasporic Haitian Catholics practice Vodou. Finally, this article illuminates emerging tensions in Haitian Catholicism caused by the tremendous recent growth in Haiti and the Haitian diaspora of the Charismatic Renewal, a surging Pentecostal movement that has overwhelmed Liberation Theology and its social agenda.
