Marcel Cornet, SMM, the French Embassy in Haiti awarded on June 26, 2018, the distinction of "Chevalier of the Legion of Honor" to Father Maurice Piquard, SMM, now the only "French" of the Province of Haiti.   
The award of the medal was held in Port-au-Prince in the residence of Ambassador MME ELIZABETH BETON.
