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.
