Ngaremara, Kenya. St. Charles Lwanga Independent Delegation is building a Retreat Centre in Ngaremara Parish, a pastoralist-dominated area in Northern Kenya.
The Claretians have been running the Parish since 2009. Starting a retreat center came into mind after the missionaries working in that corner of the world deemed it necessary to contribute to the spiritual needs of the people of the area. Thanks to Fr. Timothy Oguthu, CMF, who initiated the project with the support of Fr. John Francis, CMF, former Major Superior of the said Major Organism.
The first phase of the construction is completed, and roofing has been done. The next stage will include installing the doors, windows, and other finishings. A caretaker house has also been constructed to provide a better living for those serving the center later.
