Mary Seat of Wisdom Grotto at St. Paul's

On Sunday 30th of January 2022 St. Paul's marked the end of the Jubilee year that started on 4th of August 2019 the time which the parish celebrated 50 years of existence.  While the jubilee year was launched by His Lordship Rt. Rev. Bishop David Kamau, the Auxiliary Bishop for the Archdiocese of Nairobi, this grand finale was graced by His Grace Most Rev. Philip Anyolo, the Archbishop of Nairobi. To mark this memorable day, the bishop commissioned the Marian Grotto, which was one of the projects that were intended to be accomplished during the jubilee period.

During this jubilee period, the parish had planned lots  of activities including pilgrimage in the footsteps of the patron saint, St. Paul the Apostle, visiting the prisons, various talks on the St. Paul's writings and missionary journey, erecting of St. Paul's statue at the parish, among others. But due to the Covid-19 issue, the parish was unable to do a number of the scheduled activities except for the St. Paul's Statue, the Marian Grotto and the talks.

The visit to the prisons was scheduled for 14th of March 2020, with hundreds of parishioners having registered for the visit and several buses set for the activity. Six prisons within Nairobi region were prepared in consultation with the Regional Catholic Chaplain for the Prisons, Fr. Kimani. Unfortunately, the activity was cancelled on the 13th of March, just the night before, when the government stopped all the visits to prisons as part of containment measures for the covid pandemic.

This therefore meant that the opportunity to have the Marian Grotto commissioned was considered a great privilege and blessing. The parishioners are very happy and grateful for this accomplishment, which was steered by a very able committee through the guidance of the parish priest.
