The Year of the Eucharist 2023 that the Catholic Diocese of Murang’a (CDM) in Kenya has launched is expected to foster positive change in the spiritual life of the people of God, especially in their relationship with the person of Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist.
A sabbatical program undertaken at a Kenyan Diocese has been lauded for facilitating the “transformation” of members of the Clergy and women Religious who participate in the four-month renewal course.
Reports that potential COVID-19 drugs and vaccine could be tried on Kenyans have attracted criticism from citizens of the East African nation, including a Catholic Bishop who, in a statement, has explained why such alleged trials would undermine the dignity of Kenyans and amount to a breach of the country’s constitution.
In a bid to guarantee continuity in the priestly ministry of the Church in Kenya’s Diocese of Murang’a (CDM), financial assistance is being sought from Christians and well-wishers to facilitate the training and formation of seminarians, the Vocations Director of the diocese has told ACI Africa and explained the reasons behind the initiative.
Inspired by the celebration of the Sunday of the Word of God, which Pope Francis established through his September 30, 2019 Apostolic Letter “Aperuit illis” to be marked by Catholics across the globe on January 26, Kenya’s Diocese of Murang’a launched a yearlong celebration of the same event Saturday, January 25.
