Youth Converge in Nairobi to celebrate National Mass

It was pomp and colour as hundreds of Catholic youth from across the dioceses in Kenya converged at the National Youth Centre for the National Youth Mass, under the theme, For he who is mighty has done great things for me, and Holy is his name. Luke 1:49

The annual celebration was marked with a procession led by youth band from the archdiocese of Kisumu followed by the mass servers, the priests and finally the Archbishop. Archbishop Zacchaeus Okoth of Kisumu was the main celebrant.

In his homily, Archbishop Okoth told the young to worship only God and they will forever remain happy. He cautioned the youth not to accept to be misled by the politicians in perpetrating violence. He urged the youth to say no to violence and be custodians of peace. God didn’t create bad tribes, all of them are good but we only blackmail them said Archbishop Okoth urging the young people to be firm in their faith in Christ and extend their love to all. He reminded them that they have a lot of energy which can be geared towards the development of the Catholic faith as well as assisting those who are in need especially the sick, aged and those who are physically challenged

He also informed them that the whole Church was represented at the function through all the vocations; marriage life, religious life and priesthood. He called on the youth to be committed so they can live either of the vocation of the church through God’s guidance. “The good vocation will lead you and is very important because it is pleasing to God and you must live for God, love God and neighbor to earn heaven. As young men imitate St. Joseph, husband to Mary and Young girls imitate Mary who was the first to listen to the word of God and said yes without questions.” He said. He further stressed that all the vocations are important in the Church and none was superior to the other.

Special appreciation to Rev. Frs. Paul Mutemi, Patrick Mwavu, Michael Ngunia and Seminarian Joseph Musee who accompanied the youth from Kitui. God bless you.
