Mokama memorial service

“As we remember our Sister Paula Merrill and Sister Margaret Held and their great sacrifice of their lives for the cause of the poor and the marginalized, we thank God for their lives of dedication and commitment and ultimately risking their lives. We are saddened by their untimely death but yet feel proud of them for touching of thousands of lives with compassion and love as our Master Jesus Himself showed us. We had a beautiful memorial prayer service in the chapel of Nazareth Convent in Mokama. The Sisters from Nazareth Convent, Nazareth Hospital, Ashirvad North, Ashirvad South, novices and candidates joined together in gratitude to God for our valiant sisters whose lives and death have touched our lives and have inspired us. We continue to pray for the repose of the souls and our dear Sisters and send our heart felt condolences to the families and the communities they belong.” —Sister Cecilia Simick | View more photos here.
