CWN Editor's Note: Mother Mary Claude Oguh recounted that a few years ago, she “tried to close one of their convents in a troubled region of Nigeria where the security of the sisters could not be guaranteed. Her own sisters declined to move. They told her, ‘But we have our children here in the school. We wouldn’t want to leave them and move.’”
