The SMA Provincial Leadership is asking that we include in the Prayers of the Faithful at our community and public Masses a prayer for Fr. Pierluigi Maccalli’s safe release. As of today there is no further news on his abduction.
A suggested prayer:
We pray for the safe return of Fr Gigi Maccalli SMA who was kidnapped in Niger Republic recently. Strengthen him, his family in Italy and his SMA confreres in Niger at this difficult time.
Lord, hear us.
An A3 poster, asking prayers for Fr Gigi’s safe return has been posted to all SMA Houses and parishes in Ireland by the Provincial Secretary, Fr. Martin Kavanagh SMA. Confreres are asked to display them in prominent positions [entrances, community notice boards etc.,] in order to keep Fr Gigi’s plight in our minds and prayers as well as those who call to our houses etc.. Those in parishes might display it on their notice boards.
