On Saturday, March 7, 2020, the Province of St. Francis of Assisi in Kenya celebrated the diaconal ordination of Friar John Mungai WAMBUI. The ceremony took place at the Church of Saint Catherine of Alexandria in Nairobi – South C, Kenya.
This was the first ordination celebrated in the Jurisdiction of Kenya since it was made a Province at the 2019 Ordinary General Chapter. During Kenya’s first Ordinary Provincial Chapter, September 23-27, 2019, Friar Obed Muriungi KAROBIA was elected the first Minister Provincial.
The diaconal ordination was presided over by the Most Reverend David KAMAU, Auxiliary Bishop of Nairobi. Many confreres and lay faithful attended.
Friar John Mungai was born in Kiambu, Kenya on November 28, 1988. He made his simple profession on August 2, 2011, and his solemn profession on September 29, 2019. Our brother wishes to serve the Lord and his neighbor with joy, wherever the Father in His mercy may lead him.
Friar Pius Mutisya MUSYOKA
