Botswana and Kenya Tour

Posted by Spalding Hurst

February 14, 2023

Sister Philomena Kottoor shares about her recent trip to Botswana and Kenya. She visited different ministry places, including the hospice and outreach programs, where she witnessed the dedication of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth in caring for the poor and sick. She also met with Archbishops, Fathers, and Sisters of the dioceses and visited different villages and schools. In Kenya, she saw the opportunities for future expansion of the mission. She expresses gratitude to God and the CLT for the opportunity.

“As I reflect on my experiences, I see many opportunities for future expansion of the Kenya mission. I hear an inner voice whispering that we cannot wait and must move on from places without vocations or potential for growth. We should move to places where people are longing for deeper faith and God experiences.”

    Dear Philo,

    As I was reading your sharing on our African mission I was very much moved by the hard work of our missionaries in Africa . What a great opportunity you had ! Thank you for sharing your reflection which has helped me to understand our mission over there . I am proud of our sisters who have responded the call to spread our Charism miles and miles away .

The village of San Vincente, located on the edge of the Guatemalan border, might appear to be an unexpected locale to find the enduring spirit of St. Vincent de Paul. Yet, it’s here that a small but vibrant Catholic Church, named in honor of the saint, stands as a symbol of his legacy.
