V. Rev. Fr. Paul Achandy CMI, Prior General

Prayerful Greetings from Chavara Hills, Kakkanad.

Welcome to the new website of the CMI Kenyan Mission. Since its beginning in the year 1981, CMI Kenyan mission became one of the faces of CMI Congregation for global mission. I appreciate all the missionaries working at Kenya and remember all those who are in the developing stage of the mission starting from Late Fr. Edward Padikkala.

Holy Father Pope Francis, in his message for the last World Mission Sunday, reminds us of the clear connection between consecrated life and mission. Let the CMI Mission at Kenya be a true face of consecrated life of Carmelites.

Fraternally yours in the Lord

Fr. Paul Achandy CMI | Prior General

V. Rev. Fr. Walter Thalappilly CMI, Provincial

Praise to You Lord Jesus Christ!

I am happy to know that the CMIs at Kenya came up with a new home page for their mission. I appreciate your efforts in making use of digital technology for the continuing evangelization process in the continent.

I had a wonderful experience with you, as I visited you last August. All our missionaries in Eastern Africa do an excellent mission work in various stations. The effort taken by our missionaries to preach Good News will be rewarded. I extend you whole hearted support and prayers of all members of CMI Devamatha Province for your indisputable effort in making Kingdome of God bigger.

With Prayerful Greetings

Fr. Walter Thelappilly CMI | CMI Devamatha Provincial, Thrissur, India

V. Rev. Fr. Johny Tachuparamban CMI, Regional Superior

Glory to Jesus Christ!

I deem as a singular providence of God this historical event when we, the members of the CMI Congregation of St. Thomas Region, East Africa, Devamatha Province, launch this Website, which will serve as God's channel of redemptive work and consolation.

Proclamation of the Word of God in a digital age requires that we take cognizance of the importance of digital communities and networks. Pope Benedict addressing himself particularly, albeit not exclusively, to the digital generation entrusted the evangelization of the digital continent to young Catholics: "in particular, to young people, who have an almost spontaneous affinity for the new means of communication, to take on the responsibility for the evangelization of this "digital continent." (Pope Benedict 47th World Communications Day Address, 2013)...read more>>
