In a statement shared with ACI Africa ahead of the annual World Day for Consecrated life marked on February 2, the chairperson of RSCK, Fr. Robert Karanja, says that those who pioneered missionary work in Kenya faced many challenges to bring good news to Kenyans.
“In our celebrations, let us pray for the consecrated persons who were the first to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ in Kenya as missionaries,” Fr. Karanja says, and adds in reference to pioneer missionaries in Kenya, “Many of them went through different forms of sufferings and tribulations in order to bring the good news to us.”
The Kenyan Priest urged Consecrated persons to continue with the ministry begun by the pioneer missionaries and to even re-evangelize in different parts of the world.
