_ POPE TO VISIT KENYA, UGANDA AND CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC IN NOVEMBER ~ :: Habari Duniani

Kenyas Catholic looks forward to Pope Francis’ first visit from November 25 to 27. On Sunday they will begin special prayers and night vigils in preparation for the visit of Pope. This will be his first visit to Africa since his election in March 2013.
Organizers say 1.5 million people are expected in Nairobi for the historic visit.
His Holiness Francis will make an Apostolic Trip to Kenya from 25 to 27 November 2015, Uganda from 27 to 29 November, and the Central African Republic from 29 to 30 November. The programme of the trip will be published in due course.

In Kenya due to logistical and security arrangements, it will not be a free for all affair, unlike in the past Papal masses. Special arrangements have been made for dioceses to only allow a limited number of people at the mass at University of Nairobi’s graduation square. About 200,000 congregants will be allowed inside the square. The rest will watch on giant screens put up around Uhuru Park, Central Park and other public places in the city.


The four Kenyan Archdioceses of Nairobi, Kisumu, Mombasa and Nyeri have 26 dioceses and one Military Ordinariate. The ordinariate is without a bishop now following the retirement of Bishop Col Alfred Rotich.
Rotich is in charge the national committee organising the Pope’s visit assisted by the Rev Dr Stephen Okello, a Consolata Missionary who organised the last Papal visit to Kenya in 1995.

In Nairobi, the epicentre of the celebrations, arrangements are in full gear. Inside the Holy Family Minor Basilica, there is a full length colour portrait of Pope Francis in his symbolic blessing salute to the congregation.
