Kenya: Loreto Sisters Centenary Fete
A member of the Institute who has served in Kenya for close to six decades has shared with ACI Africa what she calls their “biggest and absolute joy” ahead of the Centennial Celebration scheduled for Saturday, January 29 at Loreto Convent Msongari in Nairobi.
Sr. Caitriona Kelly, a native of Ireland, looks back at the 100 years of service of the Loreto Sisters in Eastern Africa Province with appreciation and highlights major contributions of the members of the 200-year-old Institute in their apostolate in Kenya.
“There are four Irish missionaries left in this Province, ranging from (the age of) 93 to 75; and I’m 80 myself now. Our biggest and absolute joy,” Sr. Kelly told ACI Africa, is to have seen “Loreto past pupils really having an impact on society in terms of values and of morals.”
