On a beautiful Saturday afternoon, the local Kenyan community came together at Prince of Peace to pray the Rosary in honor of the feast day of Our Lady of Fatima, October 13. Members of this group are from Prince of Peace, St. Peter the Apostle as well as some other Birmingham diocese churches. They usually assemble on the second Sunday of the month at noon to pray the Rosary, but it was changed to Saturday for the feast day. On the third Sunday of the month at 3pm, they come to the day chapel for Mass offered in the Swahili language by Father Daniel Owuor, pastor of St. Jude Parish in Montgomery, AL. Everyone is welcome to come and pray the Rosary with them or attend Mass in Swahili.
Later this month, members of the group are traveling to Atlanta for an African Catholic Mass sponsored by the Pan African Catholic Organization of America.
