Archbishop Boniface Lele, who took over the Archdiocese in June, 2005, stressed the need of an accounting system that would safeguard the wealth of the Church. There is more concretization on the importance of financial support of the Church and the first financial report of the Archdiocese was presented to the Priests Annual General Meeting. The report was welcome as it was the first of its kind, which evoked a lot of positive support from the priests. The emphasis now is to build the capacity of the parishes to be more accountable, and therefore resulted in visitation of Parish Finance Committees, in order to enlighten and educate these committees. Monthly financial reports are coming in, and the hope is that this will be the normal way of relationship with the Finance Office. The Annual Fund Raising for the Archdiocese continues, and last year’s proceeds were the highest ever. Br. Frank Ten Hoopen is the efficient Financial Administrator. Message for all;  RE: Sacrifice that would make us feels it One of the main themes that we both see in the old and new testament is sacrifice, real sacrifice. In Genesis 4: 1 - 8 we see that God want not just sacrifice but the sacrifice that would make us feel it, he want the best of the best that we have. Their bodies had to be perfect. The owner had to feel the loss of the sacrifice. The sacrifice was not just one of the lambs but the one that the owner was most proud of. The purpose of the sacrifice was to prove to God that our commitment to him was real and not just words. We can do this through our annual fund rising that will be announced in our churches. These sacrifices after being offered to God supported the religious structure of the temple and the support of the priests.  Thank your in advance   Read more...

The target groups are those infected and affected with HIV/ AIDS. Food supplements when available, and Anti Retro Viral (ARV) medication is supplied to supplement the meagre diet of these patients. Important arms of this programme are the voluntary services from the Small Christian Communities (SCC). The “Wahuduma wa Afya” – community health servers, accompany nurses, comfort and counsel the patients and their families. The process of employing additional medical personnel and the expansion of the volunteer groups, who are being trained for their important role continues. Sr. Pauline Nthenya, who is backed by first hand experience of working with HIV/AIDS patients, heads the HIV/ AIDS Programme. Forming groups of clients for group therapy is our target.  ARCHDIOCESE OF MOMBASA CBHC & AIDS RELIEF PROJECT The Archdiocese of Mombasa CBHC and AIDS Relief Project began in 1996 as an exclusively community based home care program providing, initially, medical care to HIV positive people and other sick-poor individuals. Volunteer CHWs (community health workers) from Catholic parishes form the “backbone” of the project leading nurses to the homes of their sick neighbours. Beginning in 1 parish the project has gradually expanded to 10 parishes in Mombasa City. The Archdiocese has been serving many poor people for over fifty years now through health care services, nutrition programs, care of orphans and vulnerable children, offering shelter to the less fortunate, rehabilitation of street children and other many spiritual and charitable activities.  Today there are several programs and dispensaries which serve the sick-poor throughout the Archdiocese. AIM of the CBHC & AIDS Relief Project: The CBHC & AIDS Relief Project is a non-political and non-profit making organization whose aim is to render a community based, comprehensive and free service to People Living with HIV/AIDs (PLWHA), to provide free basic health services to other poor people in nine parishes in Mombasa and to promote good health generally.
