The event was attended by thousands of women in their mighty numbers to celebrate multiple objectives of the day. Celebrating St. Monica their patron saint day, receiving over one thousand women at the Archdiocesan level and holding a harambee for the expansion of St. Augustine school Mangu. In attendance were, Archbishop Philip Anyolo, scores of priests, and the Cabinet Secretary for Energy and Petroleum Dr. Monica Juma.
The celebrations started with talks by Ms. Winfred Linchuma, Chairperson National Gender and Equality Commission who called on women to be peace ambassadors and also reminded them of their civic duty to vote for change and progress in the country in the upcoming August polls.
Speaking to women, Fr. Jude Waweru the C.W.A Archdiocesan chaplain said, “You hold much power within you to influence the right energies to your partner and children just as St. Monica did with her husband and child, St. Augustine. Carry your responsibility as a CWA woman with love and respect wherever you go and more importantly at your home which is the basis of society.”
