fr. hugo update from colombia how the msc community is copping with covid-19

Dear Friends,

Well, I hope everything is ok, knowing we are all committed to following what is truly important during difficult times. 

I want to share news from Colombia: We are doing fine. Everyone is healthy so far. Today we started a 19-day lockdown. We are all confined. The numbers of people with the Coronavirus are growing-every single day we have new cases. Yesterday we had about 300 people infected; today we have more than 400 infected and 4 have died due to the virus. Things in the country don’t look good and the prognosis is not good. It seems to be getting worse as the days pass.  

Here at Santa Margarita where I am living with Dario and two students, things are ok. We dedicate time for cooking, praying, and mass — resting since we have lots of extra time, and working as well. The students are attending online classes. It is a peaceful time at home, given everything. The other people at the seminary and Sacred Heart Parish are doing fine — no bad news or problems; we hope everything continues to be stable.  

We are all united in prayer. Life is very demanding worldwide but the Spirit is still at work.  

Thank you very much for your attention and support. We continue our journey united in prayer.  

Hugo Leon Londoño, MSC

Bogotá, Colombia.
