Capuchins in Kenya

This is about a family,
This is about a religious group,
This is about men who have and still do make sacrifices,
This is about a vocation,
This is about the Capuchins in Kenya

   It is a story that begins in the early 70s with a group of six Maltese Capuchins Frairs - Malta, yeah, that very place where Paul the apostle is said to have neutralised all the venom in the snakes. These brothers were Brs. Leo White, Francis Baldacchino, Joe Malia, Theodosius Meli, Joe Gauci and Vincent Buhagiar. Many other brothers were sent from Malter in order to strengthen the group that was already here. Later, Kenyan brothers joined, and since then this family has grown to a one big family, religious group, men who have made sacrifices in order to respond to God's call!

  Meet these men who have done small things in a great way thus making people realize that actually they are not such small things as they seem. Who could have thought it is necessary to educate a girl in Lamu back in the 80s? Bishop Francis Baldacchino did.
