Last week a very important event came to a close in Rome.  This was the18th General Chapter of the Society of the Divine Word.  Confreres met from all over the world to deliberate on the future of the mission of the Society and its relevant in our times. In it,  New leaders were Selected.  The Socity now has a new leader: Fr.  Paul Budi Kleden.

Among the participants were the representatives of the lay associate group commonly known here in Kenya-Tanzania as ‘Friends of ‘SVD’.  Since only one of them could participate in person,  we the communication department made sure that they also got to taste what transferred during the meeting so that we could journey together.

Thanks to technology,  we were able to gather materials from the General Website that we presented to them.  Gathered from three parishes here in Burka,  we began with a prayer in form of reading and enthronement of the Word of God,  which we also sowed as a symbol of the Word sowed in our heart.

Everyone felt that they lived the Chapter moment even from this far end of the world.

Fr.  Lawrence Muthee,  SVD
