The Apostolic Administrator of the Archdiocese of Nairobi Bishop David Kamau has urged all men to emulate the humble nature of Joseph in the responsibilities given to them by God in their day-to-day lives.
“My fellow men, each one of you has been given something to do by God. Let us take a personal reflection on what God wants us to do as he counts on us on many great things in which we should not let him down,” he invigorated.
About 2,000 CMA members attended the colourful event. This was a restricted number due to the Covid-19 restrictions issued by the government.
The event, which marked the launch of the year of St. Joseph for the CMA, began with a procession from St. Benedict Parish to Queen of Apostles Seminary grounds in Ruaraka, a distance of about 5km.
This celebration also marked as the first mobilization of funds towards the construction of St Joseph Technical Institute in Kamulu. The sh.300 million-project is an initiative of the Archdiocese of Nairobi CMA group.
The CMA Chaplain, Rev. Fr. Stephen Mbugua in his speech, expressed his appreciation to the members for their unwavering commitment in seeing the project move forward despite the Covid-19 situation.
Reiterating the chaplain’s remarks, Mr Joshua Njoroge the Archdiocesan Men Coordinator reminded the men that the greatest legacy comes as a result of an ultimate sacrifice. He further alluded that the ongoing project is a bold step in empowering the youths and generations to come. He further added this achievement could only come when they heed to the noble invitation of following in the footsteps of their Patron St. Joseph.
