CLARKSBURG—The Sisters of the Infant Jesus at Immaculate Conception Parish in Clarksburg are continuing their collection of rosaries (intact or broken) or religious medals to send back to Zimbabwe, one of the poorest lands in Africa. “This country, which is on the verge of starvation and genocide, is one of the poorest lands in Africa,” parish officials said in December. “Do you have extra rosaries (intact or broken) or religious medals? Consider donating them for distribution to Zimbabwe Catholics. Your help in this endeavor would be greatly appreciated! This is from our hands directly into hands that are not able to afford or find these items which we take for granted.” The sisters ask the faithful to send rosary beads before May 14 to Sister Maria/Sister Beritha, Immaculate Conception Church, 150 S. Maple St., Clarksburg, WV 26301. They also ask that donors include a note with the name or his or her parish/organization so the sisters can add them to their prayer lists and express their thanks.
