Bishop Muheria Launches Diocesan Lenten Campaign

Kenyans have been called upon to embrace peace and pray for peaceful elections as well strive to make Kenya a peaceful, prosperous and a stable Country by promoting dialogue, reconciliation and forgiveness 

In his homily during the Launch of 2017 Diocesan Lenten Campaign on 5th, March, 2016 at Holy Family Catholic Parish, Kabati, His Lordship Rt. Rev. Anthony Muheria called upon all the Christians to sacrifice and give more contribution so as to reach during this Lenten season.  "In the season of Lent, the Catholic Church calls her faithful to be in fellowship and solidary with their brothers and sisters who are less fortunate and support the church through prayers, self-denial and alms giving." He said

He also requested the Christians to turn back to God by repenting their sins through the sacrament of reconciliation. “The peace of mind and soul which this sacrament imparts to us is one for which there is no substitute. It is a peace that flows from a certainty, rather than from an unsure hope, that our sins have been forgiven and that we are right with God.” he said. 

Lent is a 40-day period of fasting, prayer and penance before Easter. In the Christian tradition, this is the period of the liturgical year from Ash Wednesday to Palm Sunday (Sundown). This annual commemoration prepares the faithful through prayer, repentance, giving alms and self-denial, for the events linked to the Passion of Christ and the celebration of his resurrection. This year’s theme is “Peaceful and Credible elections. Leaders of Integrity.”

The Launch that was heralded by a walk from the church through the Town  and back to the parish grounds was attended by clergy and religious, Diocesan Justice and Peace commissioners, CJPC diocesan coordinators, the faithful and Government officials who were also issued with Lenten Campaign booklets.
