DONATION OF PPEs BY EQUITY BANK

Speaking during the event of receiving the donations, the Parish Priest of St Mary’s Chiga Catholic Church, Rev. Fr. Samuel Nyattaya, saw the hidden Divine Providence in the fact that we received these donations on the day when the Church celebrates the BIRTHDAY OF ST JOHN THE BAPTIST. Just as John the Baptist was a special donation to the world, and signified a lot of good things to come, these donations of PPEs from Equity signals a lot of hopeful and glad tidings between us.
He thanked the staff of the Hospital and all the health care-givers for their selflessness at these unprecedented times, noting how much PRIESTS and HEALTH-CARE GIVERS are seriously exposed on a daily basis, hence the need to get these PPEs.
He also noted with gladness the other joint interventions that Equity has had with the Parish of Chiga when they donated 5000 tree seedlings to be planted in our churches within Kolwa East of the larger Kisumu County.

EVALUATION OF LENTEN CAMPAIGNS OF 2021

National Office.
This Office brings together the NES (National Executive Secretary, various Program Officers, Representatives of Partners like Agia Mondo, Administrative Secretaries, and Accountants.
This Office, housed at the KCCB-Secretariat in Nairobi, Westlands, is tasked to (among other responsibilities) publish the Lenten Campaign Materials (Booklets and Posters) to all the Arch/Dioceses.
In doing our evaluations, they too must be able to look back and adjust where necessary, gathering the lessons learnt and charting the next journey that the upcoming Campaigns are to take.

CREATION OF THE COMMISSION FOR THE PROMOTION OF INTEGRAL HUMAN DEVELOPMENT

In 2016, the Holy Father created the Dicastery for the Promotion of Integral  Human Development. This brought together the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, the Pontifical Council Cor Unum, the Pontifical Council for the Pastoral Care of Migrants and Itinerant People, and the Pontifical Council for Health Care Workers.
When KCCB (the Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops) met this year 2021 and elected various Arch/Bishops to head various Commissions at their Secretariat, a NEW COMMISSION WAS CREATED dealing with the PROMOTION OF INTEGRAL HUMAN DEVELOPMENT. This meant a lot of changes: Some Commissions became Departments, that is Caritas, CJPC, Health, and Sea Farers.
This week, from Monday 14th June 2021 up to 18th June 2021, the CJPD (Catholic Justice & Peace Department) has been meeting to prepare itself for one of its KEY PROGRAMS, famous as LENTEN CAMPAIGN for next year, 2022.
