We thank and praise God for the different congregation serving in different apostolate in the diocese. The Bishop, the clergy and the Faithful have been working hand in hand with the religious men and women in different fields .The brothers of St Peter Claver still remain to be the only congregation of religious brother. During the last ten years, the brothers have made good progress in the field of pastoral work, agriculture, education, health and social work.
Since Bishop Martin took over the Diocese, he has stressed the value of the religious mainly because of the admirable help they give in all sorts of services undertaken in our local church; education ,health , social services, catechesis, ( Bikira Maria Catechetical Center Mbitini is doing wonderful work ). We must not however forget that these services are not the aims of the religious life, but means whereby the specific aim of religious life is rendered. Their service in the church is precisely that of “Witness”.
