Fr. General in Kangemi

upendo1Fr. General's first stop was at St. Joseph Upendo Orphans and Vulnerable Children Centre, where he was welcomed by Fr. Faustine Binamungu, SJ, St. Joseph the Worker Parish Priest, Fr. Angelo Munduni, SJ, Assistant Parish Priest and Director of the Development Programs, teachers, some members of the Parish Council and a parade of Upendo program beneficiary students and students from St. Joseph Technical Secondary School.

Students of St. Joseph Technical Secondary School then presented a poem on the gap between the vulnerable child and political and religious leaders in society. In his introductory remarks, Fr. Binamungu, SJ, gave a brief history of St. Joseph the Worker Parish and its programs and invited Fr. Munduni, SJ, who talked about the Upendo program and other Parish activities. Fr. Munduni stressed the positive impact the programme has had on the vulnerable children in terms of nutrition, education, and well being thanks to the pastoral and charitable support of the Small Christian Communities, Sunday collection in support of the poor, and donations from well wishers.

Immediately after that, Fr. General visited the lower primary class at the centre where he was welcomed by song and dance by the students and teachers. He was even invited to 'join the band.' He then held a brief meeting with the Parish Council which supports the Father in Charge as a consultative body. Father General was pleased by the work done in support of the vulnerable children which he summarized by the work solidarity. From Upendo unit, he visited St. Joseph the Worker Dispensary where he was given a brief a brief tour by Fr. Alexander Wainaina, SJ and Sr. Magdale Wanjilu Mwaura, dispensary administrator, before moving to St. Joseph the Worker Dolly Craft and Women Sewing Project where he was presented with vestments for Mass by Sr. Ida. He was quite impressed by the work done at the sewing project and had a chance to meet the women and men working in the project.

Soon after, he entered St. Joseph the Worker Parish Church and had a brief a brief tour of the parish premises before joining the Jesuit community at the Parish for a small tea break. He then left for Loyola House where he was joined by the collaborators and Jesuits for lunch.
