Opening and Blessing of the New Alberione House


Due to the growing need to provide more ample living and work space for the Daughters of St. Paul who live and study in the Gabriella Community in Karen, Nairobi, the Delegation Government decided to build a new house. In view of this, the circumscription government contracted several companies to carry out architectural, civil, mechanical and construction services under their supervision.

On 2 October 2021, the foundation stone of the building was laid and a Bible was placed next to it. On 13 August 2022, during a Eucharistic Liturgy at the ecclesiastical residence in Nairobi, Archbishop Philip Anyolo blessed the plaque of Alberione House and symbolically imparted his blessing to all the Daughters of St. Paul who will live there, while the official blessing of the new edifice was imparted by Fr. Gerald Namunga CSSp.

Alberione House will serve multiple needs: it will be used as a retreat house, a house for the circumscription’s students, and a home for its elderly sisters.

May the Lord bless and reward all the people who helped to make this project a reality.
