Africa C


St. Olaf Catholic Church and the Catholic Church of the villages of Busia, Bulanda, Mwari, Kakurikit, Kiamwangi, and Ojamii in Kenya are responding to our baptismal call to service through our partnership and servant-leadership. We are committed to welcoming and receiving one another as Christ as we embrace a mutual spiritual journey of sharing gifts, talents, needs and resources. We respectfully seek to understand one another and grow together in solidarity as we work and pray to build strong, healthy, and sustainable communities.
