Two Sisters brutally murdered in Mississippi

With deep sorrow Vincentians of the Eastern Province join their prayers to the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth and the School Sisters of St. Francis as they mourn the brutal murder of  Sister Paula Merrill of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, and Sister Margaret Held of the School Sisters of St. Francis. They were found dead in their shared home in Durant, Mississippi. The Durant police and the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation are investigating. Please pray in gratitude for the precious lives of Sisters Paula and Margaret.
