Pope Francis will be visiting Kenya on 25th – 27th November 2015. In order to prepare ourselves for this special moment of grace, the Chaplaincy has lined up the following activities:
a) Registration: those who wish to take part in Holy Mass at the Nairobi University grounds or the Youth Meeting at Kasarani (or both) may register with the Chaplaincy Help Desk, either by going there physically or sending the information to their emails: Benjamin Simiyu or John Maina;
b) Spiritual Preparation: the Chaplaincy will organize talks, meditations and vigils to help us all prepare ourselves spiritually for the event. The Bishops have also requested the Youth to offer the Holy Father a gift of Holy Rosaries said for his intentions. Youngsters are therefore requested to say as many Rosaries as possible between 15 October and 15 November. The number of Rosaries said will be collated and offered to the Holy Father – gift from the Kenyan Youth.
