Kenya: Joys and Challenges of Seminary Formation
In the June 3 interview, Archbishop Muhatia encouraged people of goodwill in Kenya to support the formation of Seminarians financially because funds from foreign sources are diminishing.
“Previously, the formation of our Clergy used to rely entirely on the Holy Father. The Holy Father would beg and ask volunteers to help us form our Priests,” he said, adding that the “tide is changing” as funds from the Holy Father are decreasing.
“What happens if the funds completely diminish? We will either send away our seminarians or look for another way of educating them,” he said, and added, “We have to look for local resources because the external resources are diminishing and one day they are going to come to an end.”
