Fr. Tom Uzhunnalil , a Salesian priest from Kerala, India, was serving as Chaplain to the Missionaries of Charity Sisters in Yemen.

On 4 th March 2016, a group of unidentified gunmen barged into the home for the elderly, run by the Sisters, killing 16 people including 4 of the sisters. Fr. Tom was abducted.

What followed was 557 days of lonely captivity in unknown locations. He was released on 12 th September 2017. Fr. Tom in his autobiography ‘By the Grace of God’ wrote, “I had been contemplating about the may brave martyrs of the Church all across the centuries from all over the world. The words of Tertullian, ‘The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the Church’ became meaningful to me ever since I witnessed the cold-blooded murder of the Missionaries of Charity sisters on the day I was taken captive. They were given the privilege of bearing witness to the Lord by becoming martyrs.”

Fr Tom will be speaking in our parish:

Thursday, May 30th at 7pm

St Aloysius Church, Richmond.
