Waumini Communications || By Rose Achiego, Nairobi || 28 July 2016
The Chairman of the Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops (KCCB), Bishop Philip Anyolo of Homabay diocese has said injustices, corruption, violence, acts of terror and destruction of property and the current wave of arson and unrest in some Kenyan schools are problems fuelled by a lack of moral values.
Bishop Anyolo was speaking at the closing ceremonies of a workshop for major seminary rectors and other seminary formators.
The workshop took place at the Resurrection Garden in Nairobi.
Bishop Anyolo called on formators to teach upcoming priests chastity, self-restraint, charity, diligence, forgiveness, kindness and humility so that they would, in turn, radiate the best of these virtues to the faithful who would be entrusted to them for pastoral care.
Speaking at the same occasion, Rome-based Secretary General of the Pontifical Society of St. Peter the Apostle, Fr. Fernando Domingues called on the formators gathered to always give of their best to seminarians and to accept their calling with humility and generosity without retreating from their responsibilities.
The workshop brought together about 70 participants among them rectors and formators from Kenya’s minor and major seminaries.
