This year, the Daughters of St. Paul of Kenya celebrated the Feast of Blessed James Alberione (26 November 2014) by launching the app ebooks and an e-commerce web site. The event, which took place in the new building dedicated to the memory of Cardinal Maurice Otunga, located in the heart of Nairobi, was attended by bishops, priests, religious, the Ambassador of Mozambique, other high-ranking officials, Pauline collaborators and friends. All the guest speakers underscored the importance of both initiatives for the Church and society and warmly congratulated the sisters for launching them.
In his talk, Bishop Martin Kivuva, President of the Communications Commission of the Catholic Episcopal Conference of Kenya, emphasized the influence of technology on the Church and society, saying that the world is changing because of all the developments in this field. This progress, he declared, challenges everyone to become more active in using the new technologies for evangelization. Technology has globalized the world, making it accessible to everyone.
About 150 guests participated in the launch and all left with a souvenir bag commemorating the Centenary of the Daughters of St. Paul. The bag contained information about the Institute and a newly-published pocket edition of the Gospelsa very meaningful way of celebrating the anniversary of our foundation.
