Pray for the sisters of St Mary's, Mzuzu

From our companion diocese of Northern Malawi, Father Fanuel Magangani wrote with distressing news. Last night, over a dozen thieves broke into St Mary's Convent in Luwinga, Mzuzu. They stole several items including money from the convent that was to be given today to contractors to build a new guest house. Even more distressing, they went into the cells, demanding money from the sisters (thinking that they would have more in their private rooms). Thankfully no sister was beaten or injured. Fr Fanuel, the chaplain asks for prayers of thanksgiving for their safety and intercession for the strengthening of their hope and faith during this difficult time.

Those sisters are absolutely lovely, so sad to hear of the robbery. They're in my prayers.
