LETTER OF COMMISERATION TO THE CONGREGATION OF THE PRECIOUS BLOOD
The SACBC expresses deep sadness and sincere sympathy to the Provincial and Sisters of the Precious Blood Congregation on the sudden passing of four of your dedicated sisters in this very short period of time. We wish to assure your Bishop, Sithembele Sipuka that we are close to him and the diocese on this tragedy. We assure you, dear Sisters, that your loss is not only felt by the Congregation but by the whole South African Church. The departed were generous servants of the Lord and while we mourn them we express heartfelt gratitude for their service to God’s people over many years.
Your sisters have now gone below this world’s horizon to rise in the dawn of God’s presence. They have gone to join so many generous souls of your religious family who are with God. Be assured, dear Sisters, of the prayers of the SACBC and of all the faithful of the Church in Southern Africa.
