Early Reports: Lasallians Safe after Earthquake/Tsunami in Japan

Brother Jose del Coss, President of the Delegation of Japan, has informed the Institute on the condition of Lasallians and their ministries after Friday’s devastating 8.9-magnitude earthquake and tsunami. The children at La Salle Home, a welfare facility in the coastal city of Sendai, closest to the epicenter and approximately 180 miles north of Tokyo, are safe but without electricity.

Lasallians in Hakodate and Kagoshima, where the Delegation is headquartered, are farther from the earthquake’s epicenter.

Please keep the Lasallians in Japan and all others affected in your prayers.
