Bombing in Pakistan near our bookcenter

We just got word that a suicide bombing in Pakistan hit several Catholic buildings, including our bookcenter (the St. Paul Communication Center). As of now we do not have word on the extent of the damage. Thank you for your prayers for everyone involved, especially our sisters. Here is the release from NC News Service:
