Six Alumni Children Baptized
By Edwin Wachira – Alumni Moderator
The Alumni August 8th mass was marked by six children baptized, the mass started at 6.50pm and Rev Fr Dr Ndikaru, our chaplain was the main celebrant. In attendance were alumni members, students, staff n as well as friends of the alumni.
It was the feast of St Dominic and our chaplain narrated a brief story of the saint. St Dominic was dedicated to the works of God and he had a desire to be a priest. However, his parents and relatives were against him becoming a priest and they tried all they could to shutter his dreams. It is also during the sermon that the priest talked about baptism and especially why we have infant’s baptism. All members also had a chance to renew the vows of their baptisms.
The chaplain also really insisted on the sacrament of matrimony especially for those who brought their kids for baptism. He said he is always ready to celebrate such sacraments and it is his duty and responsible to remind people to have the sacraments of the church.
Six children were baptized. They include; Brighton Ostimi, Jude Etenyi, Hope Katheu, Clara Munini, Purity Tracey Mumbi and Alma Ann zawadi
