Last Tuesday on 17 june 2014, Br. Njenga Anthony who is studying theology in Rome concluded basic theological studies at the Salesian Pontifical University by defending his degree thesis in Theology. “Christ the Lord, full revelation of God and Man” was the title of his thesis. The moderator was Prof. Paolo Carlotti (teaches Fundamental Moral Theology and Bioethics) while the second moderator was Prof. Maciej Sarbinowski (teaches Introduction to theology and Fundamental theology).In his thesis written and discussed in Italian, Njenga outlined and insisted on the centrality of the fullness of revelation of God’s and Man’s mystery in Christ. Christ being the Son of God is the perfect revelation of God and on the other hand, being the perfect Man and the new Adam, he is the appropriate revelation of Man/human being: As a result, in order to understand and know the heart of God, we should look at Christ and to be able to understand and realize who human being is, as well as his existential vocation, we should therefore look at Christ.
He also exposed the reasons as to why he chose “Christ the Lord, full revelation of God and Man” as the title of his degree thesis: The objective realization that in today’s society many people lead an indifferent life, as if God doesn’t exist, giving very little importance to human dignity and to man’s supreme destiny fully revealed in Christ. Only Christ, who is both the revealer of God and the perfect model for every man, is the only key to understanding the mystery of God and man. We are in a society where everything which has a religious character is being relativized, trivialized and rejected, forgetting that when you reject God, you automatically reject man because human existence cannot make sense by itself without God who created man for to a good and specific end. He concluded his thesis dedicating some pages about "Saint Luigi Orione the saint of Charity"

Children, Missionaries of Peace and Love.

At the invitation of the parish priest, Father Peter Wambulwa Wakoba and his confreres Fr Alex Ruiz and Fr Stan Achi, many children throughout the parish gathered in the mother Church of Kandisi to celebrate the Parish Day of Missionary Childhood. With their animators and catechists; it is more than two hundred children in Yellow, White and Red colors from Holy Family Noopopong, St Francis Emakoko, St Luigi Orione Sholinke, St Joseph Entimikomi, St John Rangau, Holy Family of Oloosirikon, St Ignatius of Olekasasi, St Anthony Rangau and Holy Spirit  of Kandisi, who have invaded the precincts of the parish. A day of utter joy from 9:30 am to 4 pm.
In the program, the Holy Mass presided by Fr Stan in honour of the children, a fraternal lunch and a video session on the life of St. Josephine Bakhita.
In his short but vibrant speech, Father Alex invited the children to become Missionaries of Love and Peace. Their privileged places of mission are at home and in school.
The parish priest, Father Peter invited them to take every opportunity of meetings as unique chance to be together and grow as a community. He did not fail to emphasize the fact that they are the future of the parish and of our various Christian communities.

The day ended at 4 pm with a group photo session and the final prayer and blessing of Father Stan. Thank you to all the supervisors, animators, catechists and parents who made possible this activity. Long live to the Pontifical Missionary Childhood (PMC) and good journey towards Pentecost which will be our Family Day as Holy Spirit parish of Kandisi.
