The Conference of Africa –Madagascar and the English speaking units of Kenya – South Africa – Zimbabwe (KEN-SA-ZIM) have began a new novitiate house in Nairobi – Kenya, on the 16th of July 2014. The event began with a solemn holy mass at 9.30am in the morning presided by the Mission Superior of Kenya Fr. Albert Toppo C.Ss.R. and con celebrated by Fr. Issac Dung Dung C.Ss.R (Novice Master), Fr. Nicholas Kibara C.Ss.R. (Assistant Novice Master) together with the six novices Charles Otieno (Kenya), Emerson Machepa (Zimbabwe), James Thuku (Kenya), Issac Wanyoike (Kenya), Lewis Mutiso (Kenya) and Sebastian Kyuma (Kenya).
This Novitate serves the three units of Kenya-South Africa-Zimbabwe (KEN-SA-ZIM). It’s new venture for the unit of Kenya to host this international inter novitiate programme for those aspiring to be Redemptorists from these three units. As they began this mile stone we wish them all the best in this endeavour and God’s blessings upon the new Novitiate community at Karen, Nairobi, Kenya.
