Message from the Apostolic Administrator

My dear Christians of Kitui, My dear daughters and sons in Christ,
May our Blessed Saviour, Jesus Christ be praised, now and forever. “Now when the angels had gone from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, ‘Let us go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened which the Lord has made known to us.’ So they hurried away and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in the manger.” (Luke 2:15-18)
