Nairobi, 18 October, 2020 / 11:26 am (ACI Africa).
Fostering collaboration with other Church entities in Kenya in view of promoting evangelization in the East African nation is one of the objectives of the newly elected Chairman of the Religious Superiors’ Conference of Kenya (RSCK), the forum that brings together representatives of the male Religious Orders and Societies of Apostolic Life in Kenya.
“I look forward to intensify the collaboration between RSCK and other church juridical bodies and organizations such as the Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops (KCCB), Association of Sisterhoods of Kenya (AOSK) and different Dioceses in Kenya more so in the work of evangelization,” Fr. Robert Karanja Ireri told ACI Africa Saturday, October 17 interview.
Fostering fraternal collaboration in our apostolate in Kenya is necessary because “we all serve the mission of Jesus Christ through his body which is the church,” Fr. Robert, a member member of the Order of St. Augustine (Augustinians) said.
He was elected alongside four others on October 14 during RSCK’s two-day Annual General Meeting that started off with the address of the Apostolic Nuncio in Kenya and South Sudan, Archbishop Bert van Megen.
The new Chairman looks forward to “more vibrant and effective” RSCK Commissions, he told ACI Africa, noting that it is through such Commissions that the 51-year-old entity “can be more effective at the grassroots.”
