SPREAD THE LIGHT OF CHRIST, BISHOP KAMAU URGES CATECHISTS
The Apostolic Administrator of the Archdiocese of Nairobi has called on all catechists to spread the light of Christ to Christians during these challenging times. Presiding over Mass at Our Lady of Visitation Makadara Parish (OLV) during the catechists’ annual Mass, Bishop David Kamau has encouraged them to form a collaborative team with Priests and Bishops for ease of serving the people of God.
“You are chosen as Catechists, to go out and present the light of Christ and that source of salvation,” he said. “Today people still need that light and salvation and that is why you as catechists, have been appointed and selected to go out and spread that light,” he added.
The annual Mass that brings all the Catechists working in the 114 parishes of the Archdiocese of Nairobi to commune together was attended by over 500 Catechists. The prelate insisted that they should be the roots of the church by first experiencing the light of Christ themselves before they can spread it to Christians.
The Archdiocese Catechists’ coordinator, Sr. Lydia Mahihu thanked the catechists for their availability amidst covid-19 fears all over the world. Reiterating the Bishop’s call of spreading the light of Christ, Fr. David Kimani, the Catechists’ Chaplain urged the catechists to continue following in the footsteps of the heart of St. Joseph in their catechism classes with Christians.
