CWN Editor's Note: Sister Suellen Tennyson, 83, a missionary in Burkina Faso (map) since 2014, was kidnapped on the night of April 4-5.

“For many years, Sister Suellen ministered to the people of the Archdiocese of New Orleans with great joy,” said Archbishop Gregory Aymond of New Orleans. “Today, we express our sadness and shock at her abduction and offer our prayers for her safe return. Please join me in praying for Sister Suellen, the Marianite Sisters of the Holy Cross, and all who know and love her during this difficult time.”
