The faithful stand with their arms outstretched.

“If God has saved you, scream out, ‘There is a God,’ ” a speaker yells into a microphone.

About 2,000 people chant: “There is a God.”

Jericho, an annual spiritual revival held at Notre D’Haiti Catholic Church, draws about 10,000 people over seven days. Locals flock to the church and some fly in from Haiti and Canada to participate in the event, now in its 14th year.
