Solemn Charge Retreat Held in Tanzania and Kenya

 

More than 500 Couples for Christ members from Tanzania travelled to Moshi, Tanzania on May 19 to attend the Solemn Charge Retreat, called “Agizo Thabiti” in Swahili, at the Christ the King Cathedral.

 

The retreat started with the Holy Mass at the Cathedral, officiated by its parish priest, Rev. Fr. Chrispine Jumanne and concelebrated by Rev. Fr. Wili Maningi and Rev. Fr. Josaphat Moshi, both from the Korongoni Parish.

 

Ricky Cuenca, a member of the CFC International Council, gave Session 1 entitled The Gift Within Us. The following sessions were given by full time pastoral workers, namely Manu Muinde from Kenya for Session 2- Called and Chosen; Sylvester Mahiri from Tanzania for Session 3: Proclaim the Word; Henjie San Juan, West Africa Regional Head for Session 4: Put Up with Hardships; and Raul Marababol, Country Coordinator for Tanzania for Session 5: Fulfill your Ministry.

 

The conference ended on a high note with the praisefest led by Muinde which saw the participants singing, dancing and giving praise to God. Fr. Wili Maningi, in his homily at the Mass that was the fitting end to the conference, thanked the CFC community for giving life to the Church and for bringing back families into the Father’s fold.

 

The retreat ended with the congregation chanting, “CFC, CHOHEA!” (CFC, Rekindle!) “CFC, TIMIZA!” (CFC, Fulfill!) “CFC, KAMILISHA!” (CFC, Charge!)

 

CFC Kenya held their Solemn Charge Retreat earlier on May 5 at the Mary Help of Christians Shrine Don Bosco in Nairobi.

 

The event started with the praying of the Rosary led by Rebecca Mwololo and Ann Njoroge, followed by the parade of the area banners led by the Governance Team headed by the National Director, Abraham Munene. A festive and African-inspired opening dance number performed by CFC and the Family ministries set the mood of the retreat.

 

Session 1 was delivered by Cuenca, followed by Session 2 by William Agan, Unit Head of West Nairobi. Session 3 by Kenya Country Coordinator and East Africa Regional Coordinator, Jun Clarito from CFC Canada, Session 4 by Charles Mwololo, a member of the Governance Team of Nairobi and Session 5 by Henjie San Juan from Canada who is currently the West Africa Regional Coordinator.

 

The Mass was officiated by His Lordship Bishop David Kamau and Rev. Fr. Kulwa G. Paul, assistant parish priest of Don Bosco Shrine who lauded the CFC for being the workers of God in preserving the families and continuously doing evangelization to bring more people to Christ.
