I got word of this late today from my friend Msgr. Gerard Lopez, Vicar General for the Diocese of San Bernardino. The religious order involved—the Daughters of Mary Mother of Mercy—works in his diocese.
Here’s the email he forwarded from the order, asking for prayers:
Praise be to Jesus!
Please we have just been informed that our Rev. Mother, Mother Angeleen Umezurike, Srs. Amabilis Onuoha, and Kate Nweke, together with their driver was kidnapped this evening (Nigerian Time) on their way to Abuja.
We are requesting for prayers and booking of Masses from every community and individual sisters for their safety and immediate release.
