Fideles Lindner with Students

Our Archdiocesan Solidarity Partnership with the Diocese of Kitui began in 2004.  Fideles Lindner, from St Elizabeth Ann Seton in Hastings, was one of the original parishioners who helped form the Partnership and led many of the delegations to Kenya.  Fideles, who is affectionately called “grandmother” by the Kamba tribe in Kitui, passed away several years ago. It was a heartbreak for all.

As we celebrate our 10 year anniversary of the Partnership, our Kitui friends have decided to dedicate a room in Fideles’ honor at the new Catechetical School in Kimango.  Archbishop John Nienstedt blessed the room yesterday. It was an emotional experience for all.
