Sunday 4th September was a day well spent. CLC members and associates gathered at St. Aloysius Gonzaga Secondary School for a parenting course. Thank you Edel Churu, Catherine Waiyaki and Lucy Mbugua for your insightful inputs and coaching. The sharing on parenting styles and family mission and vision were quite helpful. We are hopeful that the knowledge shared will help us in engaging with family members more better. We look forward to more of these in the near future. Asanteni sana.
The just concluded family day was one of a kind. The theme centered on the Family in the perspective of Christian Life Community.
The facilitators helped members to relive the memories of their childhood. This exercise helped many to get in touch with experiences from past life thereby appreciating the roles parents played in bringing us up. At the end of the exercise, many parents and parents to be realized the role they play in becoming good parents and role models to children despite the many challenges facing the family in the contemporary society.
The play, by the young CLCers, was not only an entertainment but an educative one at that. It stressed on the importance of family values; respect, love, fidelity and trust among others.
As one big CLC family in Nairobi area, we shared a meal together to symbolize the union that we should all seek to adopt in our respective families for the greater good of the ministry
Thanks to all who showed up and made the day a memorable one.

Congratulations to our very own Fr. Joseph Mboya, SJ for his priestly ordination. The celebrations, on the day of ordination at St. Joseph the worker, Kangemi, his Thanksgiving mass at Our Lady of Guadalupe parish and later his home mass at Kobala, all went down in style. It was indeed the day that the Lord had made.
We thank God for the gift of Fr. Mboya and pray that as he begins a new mission, our good Lord may intercede for him, give him good health, strength and the will to continue with the good work he has began in him.
All for the Greater Glory of God!
The first Nairobi Area formation this year was held on 28th February 2016 at Loreto Valley Road. It was well attended with good representation from both the young and Old CLCers.
Those who were present can attest to the fact that the homily was one of a kind. We all left with something to take home for further reflection and action.
The theme “Towards A Listening Community” was quite relevant and practical in the day to day life of a CLCer. It was an invitation for members to Listen deeply to the spoken and unspoken words as we journey with members within our groups as well as for personal growth.
The stomach was also very well taken care of since there was plenty to eat, drink and even take away. Thanks to Nairobi area members for your generosity.
Many thanks also goes to the facilitators of the day, Nairobi Area Exco and Nairobi area members for contributing to the success of the event. God bless you.
