Catholics from the Don Bosco shrine yesterday held special prayers for Kenya security forces. Led by Bishop Rodrigo Mejia and more than 10 priests, the clerics said security forces have lately gone beyond the call of duty to protect Kenyans.
He urged Christians to pray for families of police and KDF officers stationed at various places within and outside the country.
“Our soldiers have done us proud as a nation. We will continue to offer special prayers for them” said Father Abel Njue, the Parish Priest at Don Bosco.
The clerics were speaking during a Parish day and celebration of the feast of St. John Bosco at the Shrine grounds.
The climax of the event was the celebration of Holy Mass led by Dr.Rev. Bishop Rodrigo Mejia.
Bishop Mejia urged youth in Kenya to emulate the life of St.Donbosco who he said defied all the odds to serve God and the young people in his native Italy.
“Today the youth need to heed the call of holiness and serve God to safeguard against the pitfalls of life”, the Bishop.
