Pontifical Missionary Childhood (PMC)
Pontifical Missionary Childhood was realized by the Bishops of Kenya in the year 2008. In the same year, His Eminence John cardinal Njue created an office for Pontifical Missionary Societies (PMS) Director and Pontifical Missionary Childhood (PMC) Coordinator in the Archdiocese of Nairobi. On 14th Feb 2009 there was a launching Mass for Children at St. Mary’s School ground and around 10,000 children were registered.
In this mission we are teachers for the children normally referred to as animators. The office organizes workshops, seminars and regular training to empower the animators with skills of forming the children. The office collaborates with Trainers of Trainers (TOTs) who disseminate their skills to the animators.
The Pontifical Missionary Childhood has a Motto: “Children helping Children”. This has been demonstrated by the children who offer foodstuffs, cash and clothes to help the orphans and needy children in war torn countries.
Children have also realized that they belong to the Church and so they are able to animate their own Masses.
