Presentation Sisters in Ecuador
Catherine Codd, Marcela Cruz, Mary Ivers, Margaret McCarthy and Eileen Quirke have all been reported as safe following the devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake which struck the country on 16th April 2106. The earthquake toppled buildings, damaged roads and impacted cities hundreds of miles away from its epicentre near the small fishing village of Muisne. More than 135 aftershocks had been felt, according to Ecuador’s seismological institute within a very short period of time.
We continue to keep our Sisters and all those in the areas affected by the earthquake in our prayers at this time. We remember especially all who have died and those who have been seriously injured.
