Redemptorists in Chile picking up the pieces

In the aftermath of a huge earthquake that rocked most of Chile early in the morning on Feb. 27, Redemptorists serving in the country are picking up the pieces.

Their residence in Cauquenes, about 50 kilometers from the earthquake’s epicenter, was seriously damaged, and they are still assessing the damage to the church.

In Santiago, one of the steeples of the Basilica of Our Lady of Perpetual Help was badly damaged as were some windows and parts of the exterior.

As Father Luis Fuica, econome of the Chile province put it, "we are now in solidarity with Haiti."

Please keep our Chilean brothers and the people they serve in your prayers as they begin the long road to recovery.
