Blessing of the Kindergarten Building in Katani, Kenya
The newly constructed structure for the Kindergarten in SFS Integrated Primary School Katani, was officially opened and blessed on February 24, 2017. The new building now provides ample room and facilities for the children to have a better ambience for learning and relaxation. The program began with the march-past and the hoisting the flags, followed by various entrainment programs by the students, messages from the management and guests. Then, the new building was opened by Mr. George Shinners from USA and was blessed by Fr. Augustine Mangatt MSFS. The memorial plaque was unveiled by Mr and Mrs. Prunty - representing the Living Waters International Inc.
We express our sincere thanks to all our benefactors and mission friends who have supported us in this endeavour. May God bless their generosity. Our congratulations to our confreres in Mlolongo - Katani for this initiative and making this dream a reality. The school has a record strength of 433 pupils this year. Let us thank God for everything.
Hearty Welcome to East Africa
Fr. Sebastian Annaikandathil MSFS from Mozambique / Nagpur Province has already joined us to strengthen our mission in EA. He arrived in Dar es Salaam on May 22, 2016. In the person of Fr. Sebi (as he is usually called) there are many blessings in store for us. A man of vast experiences with deep sense of focussed commitment, with positively critical thinking, he sees hope even in persons and situations that are written off. I am very sure his presence in EA will be enriching to all of us and to the people with whom we work.

Fabian Wasonga MSFS (Southern African Region/ NEI Province) Up on the successful completion of their BA studies in Bangalore, Brothers Godwin and Fabian are designated to the East Africa Province to do their regency.
