On 29/12/2019, was the Feast of the Holy Family of Nazareth. It was was a great feast for one family in Lemshuku 66 KM from the main parish station, the Family of Mzee Samwel Mapash. On this day, 60 new Christians were born through the Sacrament of Baptism, including 31 from His family a lone.
Mzee Mapashi has 4 wives and ove 50 children.
They are only a few families in the remote mountains near the mines. The community there is made up of some miners from other parts of the country and these Maasai locals.
Due to the distance and bad roads, getting to celebrate thE Sacraments is a special occasion for them.
We congratulate the newly baptized.
Fr. Lawrence Muthee, SVD
