 The parish church is big enough......

 This friary is in the Diocese of Kitale....it was owned by the Cambonian's who left and handed over to the diocese. The diocese looked after for about two years and found difficult to manage it so invited the Capuchins since last January. There are two friars and two guest friars....one is a deacon and one is preparing to go to Papua New Gineua  
 The number of daily Mass comers is on the increase the friars are available and very serviceable to the people,,,,there are 700 families with 18 substations....where the friars go to serve the people....
