DESCRIPTION

Who are the TUK Catholic Alumni?

This is a group of young catholics who were former students at the Technical University of Kenya. It comprises also of the current YCS finalists in the college. It was formed way back in 1997 after the then YCS finalists saw the need of meeting together even after college life. The bonds created through their years in college were so strong that the idea of them parting ways in there-after bore this great idea. It was founded on the vision under John 10.10

“Mission towards fullness of life” Since then, after members leaving college they have been joining the group and today we cherish a union of more than 300 members. Most of them have since relocated from Nairobi to the greater parts of the country as life demands. It is after four years, since its formation that members thought of associating themselves with a patron saint. That is how we fell in love with St. Francis of Asissi, and decided to learn more of his life. On presenting the name of the patron, the patron saint to the then priest, Fr Tony Fernades, he accepted it, and the Don Bosco Upper Hill Parish’s PPC, we were happy to be given Mr. Wachira the former student in the college as our Patron.

In the year 2011, we started associating ourselves with the patron Saint St Thomas Aquinas after the university got the Chaplaincy. In the group, we organize retreats, Charity activities as well as social activities. Of late the group has grown and recently came up with the pillars of prayer where members have formed many small groups and share their real life experiences and pray for one another over the various issues. The group has also organized major activities to bring together all the alumni members and current YCS together. Example being 10th Anniversary 2007, Reunions in 2016 and 2017.

OFFICE:

The Alumni group has an office with elected leaders to help in coordinating and organizing events.
