Dear Friars,

With great sadness, we pass onto you this news received from the Provincial Custody of Ghana: in the Northern part of Ghana on Monday, January 5,  a traffic accident, caused by a blowout, claimed the lives of Friar Emilio Gallo, Rector of the Clerics and Philosophy Seminary in Accra, Friar Peter Kuupine, Guardian of the community at Saltpond, a religious Sister, and a lay person who were with them in the van.

Also involved in the accident were Friar Charles Kabir and three other clerics. One of the students is in critical condition.

We ask you to remember our confreres in prayer.

P. Vincenzo Marcoli
Secretary General
