Glad to Be Back!

With gratitude to God, the Almighty Father for His graces, goodness and blessings, allow me to share with you a nutshell experience of my annual vacation at home in Kenya, Africa.

I must admit that I had a very wonderful, fantastic and great holiday at home. I did enjoy every bit of my stay at home to the full. Everything was fun, refreshing and relaxing. Home was so warmly and welcoming. I was super excited to be in my old childhood familiar environs and be reunited with my family, friends and parishioners of my home parish of Good Shepherd, Kakuma, after all that long prolonged period.


Vaccines, Conscience and Mandates

Our bishop wrote to his flock, August 27, 2021. Here is a portion of his letter.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

We continue to experience the impact of the COVID-19 virus in many ways in our local community. As the number of cases and deaths are increasing with the most recent variant, we must rely on our faith in Jesus and the guidance of the Church to help us navigate these challenging times that have brought pain, confusion, and division. Let us remember always that it is Christ who heals and unites. We rely on His merciful and infinite love. (…)

In December of 2020 after the release of the first vaccinations, I shared the following guidance: “Due to the serious nature of the pandemic, Catholics should prayerfully consider getting vaccinated and consult their physicians or health care providers for personalized medical information.”
