East Africa, Pre-Chapter Assembly

St Patrick’s Missionaries working in East Africa met in Nairobi last week for their Pre-Chapter Assembly. Later this year Fr Chris Byrne (seated 2nd from left) celebrates his Golden Jubilee of ordination and Fr Leo Staples (seated 3rd from left) celebrates his 95th birthday. A cake was presented to them and shared at tea break with all members present. Best wishes to Fr Chris and Fr Leo!

To mark the end of the Assembly, the group decided to replenish the earth by replacing the tree from which the papers used during the assembly may have been produced from. Fr Leo Staples, the oldest member of the Society, led the group in prayer, blessing the tree, the earth and water before the tree was planted
