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.

    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!!!
