In the News
Thank you for Saving Change for the Diocese of Kitui!
Thank you so much to everyone who participated in the Kitui Living Water Program! So far, we have collected $5,182.64. This is outstanding! Your support makes it possible for our Archdiocese and the Diocese of Kitui to work together in partnership to address the desperate need in Kitui to preserve scarce rainwater. The people of Kitui provided manpower and know-how to construct five immense earthen dams and erect sixty 10,000-liter water tanks to capture the rainwater when it comes, while our archdiocese provided financial assistance through parishes’ and Catholic schools’ participation in the Easter “Living Water” catechetical program.
In response to the U.S. Bishops’ A Call to Solidarity with Africa, the Archdiocese of St. Paul/Minneapolis entered into a Solidarity Partnership with the Catholic Diocese of Kitui, Kenya, in 2004. Kitui is located in a semi-arid area in the eastern province of Kenya 100 miles east of Nairobi, with a population of about one million people, including over 240,000 baptized Catholics and approximately 430 mission churches. The goals of the partnership are Building Relationships, Sharing Resources and Strengthening Faith.
Many relationships are built through delegation visits from both Minnesota to Kitui and as well as Kitui to Minnesota. Over the years, there have been eight such delegation exchanges, which provide opportunities to experience each other’s culture, witness each other’s hardships, and celebrate each other’s joys.
Both sides accompany and strengthen one another in our respective faith journeys through an ongoing exchange of prayers with specific shared intentions. Both sides pray for one another, recognizing our mutual dependence on God’s love.
To learn more about the Kitui Partnership, google and/or youtube “Kitui and St. Paul/Minneapolis Diocesan Partnership.” Once again, thank you so much!
