Presiding over anticipated Chrism Mass on Tuesday, April 4 at St. Joseph the Worker Cathedral of his Episcopal See, Bishop John Oballa Owaa said, “I urge you our dear Priests to let this moment help us truly do all within our power and knowledge by the grace of God to help our people deepen their faith.”
“This will require that we get more involved and more conscious of the seriousness of Catechesis,” Bishop Oballa said about the initiative that is to be observed from April 2023 to October 2024.
Organized under the theme, “Love, Understand and Live Your Catholic Faith”, the Year of Catechesis in the Kenyan Diocesan is to involve the sharing of the life of the person of Jesus Christ, to foster understanding and practice of Christian faith in daily living.
“We are called not only to preach and teach what Christ preached and taught but also and mainly as Christ did, to do it in the way he did it, and he alone can teach us,” Bishop Oballa said during the April 4 anticipated Chrism Mass, traditionally celebrated on Holy Thursday.
