BUILDING A
EUCHARISTIC CHAPEL

Over the years we've constructed school buildings for parishes; secured transportation for service; built life-saving water retention and purification systems for the needy; purchased supplies, structures and equipment for children.

But never have we built a house of prayer and worship. Until now...

AMOUNT NEEDED. AMOUNT RAISED.

$65,000.00

CONSTRUCTION BEGINS MAY 2024. COMPLETION: END OF JUNE

THE NEED

Our Vincentian community of priests and brothers in Nairobi currently have 38 seminarians-- local men who are studying to become priests and continue serving the people of God!

Midway through their studies they attend what is called a NOVITIATE-- a one year residency where they more intently do service and deepen their spiritual life toward priesthood.

The house for residency they have.

The chapel for prayer is another story...

THE REALITY

Currently the seminarians are using an old structure next to the house of their residency (near one of the Vincentian parishes). It is basically a long corridor with poor ventilation that they have adapted as best they can.

But with more seminarians (thanks be to God!) coming, the need for a more stable and beautiful space to pray and celebrate Mass is needed.

THE SOLUTION

Here's where we come in!

The remainder of our Alms donations is enough to build our seminarians a new chapel that will accomodate 30 people!

Construction starts in May and will be completed by the end of June 2024.

A large plaque acknowledging our efforts will grace the entrance to the chapel.

Also, they are asking us to choose the name of the chapel! So put your thinking caps on...
