Sister Cornelia Ekka has recently started her new mission in Kenya. Sister Cornelia is being introduced to the Catholic Community in St. Paul’s parish and its outstations. She has met Bishop Willybard Lagho, the Bishop of Malindi Diocese. Along with Sisters Vinaya Chalil and Philo Hembrom, she visits families and attends the BCC prayers. She occasionally visits the children at St. Francis Assisi Pre-primary school at Marereni where the SCNs reside. Sister Cornelia is assigned to this school. She will begin her formal language classes soon. The small SCN community in Kenya is very happy to have her.
