Thought of Saint Augustine
When did the Lord want to show himself? At the breaking of the bread. We can be sure of that: by sharing the bread, we recognize the Lord.
It is night while this life is lived. And when is this night illuminated? It is lighted when Christ descends to the night. He took the flesh of this generation and our night received the light.
(En. in ps. 138,14)
Whoever seeks joy in himself will be sad, but whoever seeks joy in God will always be joyful because God is forever.
(In Io. Ev. XIV, 2)

The Order in Kenya on the move


The delegation of St.Rita, Order of St. Augustine Kenya has opened two new parish communities this year. The first parish is in Meru Diocese near Mount Kenya. The name of the parish is Holy family Mbwiru catholic parish. This parish was canonically established on 1st January 2017.

The second parish is in Kericho diocese. The name of the parish is St.Luke’s Kebeneti catholic parish. This parish was established 18th October 2009. Augustinians officially took over the parish on 29th January 2017.

In Kenya now the Augustinians have six parish communities, one postulancy house and an international house of theology.

The mustard seed of faith planted in 1597 by Augustinian friars from Portugal and watered by the Irish and Nigerian friars from 1990 is now taking shape and becoming a big tree where people of God can find a shelter.
