IN REMEMBRANCE: Every May 8th, we give thanks for the life of our Sr. Paul-Hélène who was the first martyr of Algeria along with Br. Henri Vergès, a Marist brother. She was killed at the beginning of the afternoon by a bullet to the head, fired by Muslim terrorists who had entered the library disguised as policemen. Seventeen other Algerian martyrs were assassinated between 1994 – 1996. They were Beatified by the Church on December 8th, 2018.
