Fire in the boarding school in Congo

<p>We want to share with you the sad news of a fire in the boarding school residence building at our school in Mbansa Mboma, Congo.&nbsp;We are most grateful that no one was injured, but the building which houses some 200 resident students has been completely destroyed and a part of the academic building was damaged by the efforts to put out the fire. The students have been sent home for a week.&nbsp;Many of their parents came to get them, while others were taken by the sisters in buses to meet their parents in Kinshasa.

Concepcion Camacho, RSCJ RIP

Death: Feb. 3, 2014

We ask for your prayers for our dear sister Concepción (Concha) Camacho, RSCJ, who passed away this morning. Sister Camacho accepted the call to serve as the Society of the Sacred Heart Superior General during the 1970 General Chapter - a challenging and rewarding time of both upheaval and renewal for the Roman Catholic Church and for women religious.

For a Josephinum student

<p>One of our students has lost her father, mother and baby sister in a terrible car accident in Mexico. Please pray for comfort and faith for her and for her family. And please pray for the Josephinum community that we may find the ways to support her through this dark time.</p>
