Deaths of Two Sisters

Sr. Myrna Porto worked with Maryknoll Fr. John Barth at the Takeo Eye Hospital, and she became the director of TEH when it was turned over to Caritas. She returned to the Philippines two years ago because of ill health and then died at the beginning of January. Her memorial mass in Phnom Penh was set for yesterday, Friday, 17 January. Then in a sad turn of fortune, another sister of the Daughters of Charity, Sr. Adelfa Siega, died during Thursday night at their house in Takeo, and the memorial mass was changed to include both of the sisters.
