St. Francis Assisi Friary and Church.....Ruiru

The friary of St. Francis....this is first place that the capuchins were given in the diocese...it was a big parish which was bifurcated and created another three parishes.....only this is retained for the capuchins and rest the diocese has taken over...
One of the substations where the friars began Padre Pio prayer centre....which was very popular and many people would come for prayers and healing....the Diocese asked the friars to close down....
The Friary....
The Parish Priest Friar vincent took me around in the parish....there are 8 substations...they are on the outskirts of Nairobi
There are four new churches being built by the capuchins for the people with the support of the local people.....
