Paulines in Sudan

Our Superior General has accepted the plea of the bishop of Juba in Southern Sudan to "offer the charity of the truth" by helping the local Church in the field of evangelization and promotion of human dignity through communications media. There are eight dioceses in Southern Sudan, plus the diocese of Karthoum in Northern Sudan; overall, Sudan is currently 13.5% Catholic.
Sr. Josette and Sr. Maria Moraa are ready to go, but there are a few things they really need. They already have a tiny, prefab house from the bishop, but after the years of war, it needs some patching--and some furniture! They also need a four-wheel drive vehicle that will be up to bringing them to the more remote regions. And they need books and audiovisuals for every level of age and education, from children to priests.
Organizations and individuals are being invited (consider yourself among them!) to contribute to this new mission.

Donations can be sent to:
Unicredit Banca ag.15
Via della Conciliazione 6,
Roma, Italy

The necessary information is:
C/C 5053238
ABI 2008
CAB 03215
Istituto Pia Societa Figlie di S. Paolo
FOR: Daughters of St. Paul -- Kenya-Sudan

Clearly, Sr. Josette and Sr. Maria hope for your prayers to support them as they enter this challenging mission field, in imitation of St. Paul.
