(Crux) Salesian priest remembers the day Father Tom was kidnapped in Yemen
Dec. 15, 2017
(Excerpt) Salesian Father George Muttathuparambil received the phone call at 11:15 in the morning on March 4, 2016.
Sister Sally, the mother superior of the Missionaries of Charity center in the Yemeni port city of Aden, was in a state of shock on the phone.
The other four sisters in her community were dead: Murdered by Islamic militants who stormed into the home for the elderly run by the order. She also told Muttathuparambil that his fellow Salesian priest, Father Tom Uzhunnalil, was missing.
“Sister Sally had searched all over for the sisters and Father Tom,” the priest told Crux. “She phoned me and narrated the scene, and requested that I phone the Calcutta mother house, Bishop Hinder, and the Bangalore provincial. I contacted them, and told them all that happened.”See the full article by Doreen Ajiambo here: Salesian-run ministries in Uganda aid South Sudanese fleeing violence
