Nairobi, 11 October, 2019 / 5:22 pm (ACI Africa).
Calls for collaboration and the realization of synergies between Catholic Church institutions in Kenya ranging from entities under Bishops and those in the hands of religious orders characterized the Tuesday October 8 celebration to mark the golden jubilee of the Religious Superiors’ Conference of Kenya (RSCK).
“There is need for mutual collaboration between religious men and women and our dioceses. There is need for a link, a dialogue and this can only come through an honest partnership, honest dialogue,” Fr. Bonaventure Luchidio said in his address to the delegates and guests who gathered in Karen, Nairobi, to mark 50 years of RSCK.
Speaking on behalf of the Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops (KCCB), the National Director of the Pontifical Mission Societies (PMS) in Kenya emphasized the need for a collaborative ministry in the evangelization process saying, “We need to stop and see where can we synergize our energies so that we can reach to the ends of the earth.”
“We want to extend our invitation as KCCB to you; let us dialogue, let us talk about the mission, what we are doing,” Fr. Luchidio said, addressing RSCK in general and their delegates present at their jubilee event.
Taking further KCCB’s call for collaboration and providing the context for the call, the representative of the Association of Member Episcopal Conferences in Eastern Africa (AMECEA) at the celebration, Fr. Andrew Kaufa emphasized solidarity in Christ’s mission.
