Nairobi, 25 June, 2022 / 6:30 pm (ACI Africa).
There is need to prioritize education in faith in the person of Jesus Christ when engaging in promoting vocations to Religious Life, a Kenyan Catholic Nun has said.
In an interview with ACI Africa on the sidelines of the perpetual profession of four members of the Institute of Daughters of St. Paul (FSP) in Nairobi, the Regional Superior of FSP communities in Kenya, Malawi, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia underscored the need nurture vocations to Religious Life early enough, “in our children”.
“The Church should teach more about Christian faith because vocations originate from faith; vocation starts when one is born as a Christian,” Sr. Rosemary Mueni Mwaiwa said during the June 17 interview.

Sr. Mwaiwa added, “The Church in Africa still has vocations and what we need to do is to sustain them; take care of them and also nourish them, so that they can be fortified.”
