Sisters visit outstations in Kenya

Posted by Spalding Hurst

April 8, 2021

Today we visited some of the Catholic families in one of the outstations of our parish. This outstation has a brother who belongs to the Society of Martin de Paul in Uganda. He just finished his vows and had come home for holidays. We spent some time with his family and he accompanied us to visit other Catholic families. Some families are so interior that we have to hire a motorcycle. Motorcycles are the common and cheap mode of public transport to reach the villages. Since this was the first time we were a bit hesitant to ride the motorcycle, but we will get used to it. Otherwise, we will have to walk for more than an hour. We really enjoyed visiting and spending time with the families.

      It looks like you are going to have many new experiences and will eventually be your new norm. Blessings, prayers and good luck

    Utilizing the motorcycle makes you one with your people. Do it fearlessly. Mother Catherine undoubtedly would do so.

    Catherine would be pleased with your efforts to reach out to the remotest areas to spread the Easter joy of the risen Jesus. God bless you, and may you experience physical and interior energy to carry on. Getting on a motorbike must be hard work, but best of luck and have some fun!!!

In a Remote Belizean Village, the Spirit of St. Vincent de Paul Thrives

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.
