Monsignor Marco Ganci of the Apostolic Nunciature and Fr. Emmanuel Mulu, the Parish priest.  Just over 200 needy primary school children from St. Martin’s Primary School in Kibagare slum, run by the Assumption Sisters of Nairobi, were invited to assist the ceremony.  After Mass, invited guests, who included representatives of diplomatic missions, assisted in distributing food hampers as well as blankets donated by the IAG group (British Airways) and yoghurt generously donated by Brookside Dairy Ltd.
