President Uhuru Kenyatta has commended Loreto Sisters for a century of selfless service to humanity and outstanding contribution to Kenya's growth.

The president said, through its Christian ministry and investments in education, social ministry and other acts of mercy, Loreto Sisters had transformed the lives of many people and made Kenya a better country.

“The contribution of Loreto Sisters in our nation is inked in its alumni, which include a president, bishops, scientists, leaders in government, academia, legal minds, captains of industry, entrepreneurs, sportsmen and women,” he said.

The Head of State spoke yesterday at the Loreto Mary Ward Centre in Karen, Nairobi, when he joined Catholic Church faithful during a special mass held to commemorate 100 years of Loreto Eastern Africa Province.

He mentioned the late Nobel Laureate and environmentalist Prof Wangari Maathai, educationist Eddah Gachukia, Lady Justice Joyce Oluoch, Lady Justice Njoki Ndung’u, journalist Julie Gichuru and consultant Tina Njonjo as some of the prominent alumni of Loreto schools.

The six founders of Loreto Sisters arrived in Kenya from Ireland in 1921 and established the Loreto Eastern Africa Province, which has initiated 24 educational institutions in three African countries, 21 in Kenya, two in Tanzania and one in Ghana.

Archbishop Philip Anyolo, who conducted the homily, asked Kenyans to emulate Loreto Sisters.
