On 18th July two of our students in Kenya, Charles, Francis Sila, and Warukenya Dominic Kiarii made their final commitment in the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer in the presence of Fr. Paul Pazhangattu, the Mission Superior and all other Redemptorists in Kenya. Fr. Zephirin Luyila, the Coordinator of Africa-Madagascar and Fr. Ugese Henry Lorfa, a confrere from Nigeria were present on this occasion.
Francis and Dominic did their theological studies at Don Bosco Utume theological college, Nairobi, Kenya.
On the same day, two of our novices Pius Juma Owino and Frederick Oyoko made their first commitment in Harare, Zimbabwe. Due to travel restrictions, they were not able to return to Kenya after their novitiate.
With these professions, the Kenya Mission has now twelve finally professed members and two temporary professed. We also have 14 students doing philosophical studies and two theological studies. Three are due for novitiate while six have joined this year at our Orientation Year. We thank God for the steady vocation coming in now in the Mission.
Strong in faith, rejoicing in hope, burning with charity, on fire with zeal, in humility of heart and persevering in prayer, Redemptorists as apostolic men and genuine disciples of Saint Alphonsus follow Christ the Redeemer with hearts full of joy
