|Solomon Islands||CARMELITES PRAY FOR PEACE|
The Carmelites nuns of the diocese of Auki, in the Solomon Islands, are praying for peace in both their own islands and Fiji.|
The sisters have said they are keeping abreast of the situation through meeting with informed individuals calling on the convent and through specific requests for prayers sent to the convent.
The sisters issued a statment released via Bishop Gerard Francis Loft of Auki: "Reassure the missionaries that we remember them in our prayers."
They continued: "We are also praying for our fellow Carmelite sisters in Papua New Guinea, with whom we keep in touch via e-mail even if it is rather difficult to reach them."
