St Teresa Friary and Parish - Rusinge Island-Homa-bay

 It is an island...now connected with a bridge......the parish church and friary overlooking the great Victoria lake.....the road leading to church is very bad.....but people still come to the church...your vehicle if you use for one week on this road...sure to land it in garage with a big bill......
 The parish celebrated a family day.....many parishioners turned up.....we began Mass at 10am and ended at 3pm....with long sermons....speeches by politicians.....the liturgy was great and inspiring...

 The children....young and old....sing and dance during the Eucharist..

 For offering their gifts to the Lord....the people come forward...singing and dancing....the choir sings hymns which encourage people to contribute...it is a community spirit that one can see,,,,they are poor yet they offer to the Lord what they have...

 The Church and friary is on the top of the hill....the friars want to start a shrine of our Lady...an ideal place...


 Sunday morning mass was celebrated by me for the boarding girls....there is a school of the parish and friars run it....there are only 50 students.....


 Here in Kenya....everyone speaks English....
