With immense joy and gratitude, we thank God for the gift of four new young men in Kenya: Clinton Mwavali, from Erusui Parish, Kakamega Diocese, Watitwa Christopher, from St. Paul’s Ejinja Parish Kakamega Diocese, Kalibbala Joseph, from Uganda,Masaka Diocese, and Benedict Okoth Mukori from St.Paul’s parish Homa- Bay Diocese.
These men are ready to dedicate their lives to follow God more closely as Xaverian Brothers. The theme of the initiation was, “You are precious to me” which challenged all to reflect upon God’s love.
“Though we are unique from each other in many ways but in the eyes of God, each one of us is precious and this enables us to respect each other’s uniqueness and appreciate our capabilities,” said Brother Dan Ssenyomo.
Inter-cultural living and differences in age groups help first-year postulants know and understand one another deeper, as they begin to value community life. They now have enough opportunities to learn, widen their ideas, become aware and know the congregation better.
“They are each gifted differently,” Brother Dan continued. “We are grateful to the congregation and to the General Superior for having accepted these young men. So, we keep them in our prayers as they take another step in the formation journey so that they may be able to persevere and experience God’s unconditional love in their daily lives and the people they meet on the way.”
