Nairobi, 26 October, 2020 / 7:20 pm (ACI Africa).
The multi-national candidates for Priestly and Diaconate Ordination at a Parish of Kenya’s Archdiocese of Nairobi over the weekend were cautioned against introducing their own ways of life in the Church as they prepare to begin carrying out their ministry as ordained men of God.
In his homily during the ordination of a Priest and six Deacons belonging to St. Joseph Missionary Society of Mill Hill (Mill Hill Missionaries), the Auxiliary Bishop of Nairobi Archdiocese, Bishop David Kamau urged the seven to instead build on the already existing structures within the Church.
“The Church has been there, you don’t come with your own gospel, your own Canon Law,” Bishop Kamau said during the Sunday, October 25 ceremony.
Addressing himself to the seven candidates, the Bishop added, “You build what has already been started by your elder brothers. Don’t bring your own fashion but build on what your elders have built.”
