VMY Kitale Kenya celebrated the feast of Saint de Paul with their fellow Vincentian, the Society of Saint Vincet de Paul last September 30, 2017. They spent this day with their poor brothers and sisters at St. Kizito Parish in Kitale.
The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul funded the event together with some donations from the church members who gave food, money and clothes. Days before the activity, the members prepared the things that they would be giving during the celebration.
The group invited the poor, street children, the sick and the orphans to celebrate with them the feast of Saint Vincent. The event started with the Holy Eucharist at 9:00 in the morning. After the mass, they had some entertainment for the guests and shared lunch together.
While the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul funded the event, the members of the VMY assisted in the food preparation, cooking and serving the guests. They also distributed the packed clothes prepared for them. After the celebration, the guests were given packed uncooked food that they can cook and eat at home. The VMY members were led by their president Collins Gumba and accompanied by their parish priest Fr Joseph Namanda who is guiding the VMY members in this parish.
Indeed it was a beautiful moment of sharing with their brothers and sisters especially those who are in need. What a way to celebrate the feast of the person who started our Vincentian Charism.
