Kenya: Church At Moral Crossroads As Family in Crisis, Says Njue

John Cardinal Njue(THE STAR) JOHN Cardinal Njue has called on faithful to uphold family values in a bid to cultivate a morally upright society. The Cardinal who is alsoNairobi Archbishop said the family unit is in crisis and the effect is witnessed in the church.

Njue was speaking during the 60th anniversary celebrations for Regina Caeli parish in Karen. He was also celebrating the “Year of Faith as declared by the Holy Father”.

The Cardinal said 2013 has been declared the Year of Faith beacuse of the problems the Church is facing in Europe, the former stronghold of Christian faith.

“This situation is caused by secularisation, religious pluralism, migration, economic crisis, science and technological research, civic and political life. It calls for new evangelisation,” said the Archbishop.

Njue called on priests and faithful to use social media websites to encourage each other to keep the afaith. “Majority of the youth in our church are on social media and this can be used to spread the word,” Njue said.

Meanwhile, the church has been urged to be self sustaining with missionaries handing over most of the projects they were funding. The Archbishop said for a long time, the Church has been dependent on missionaries for money to run the ministry. “It is time to break dependency and be champions of the gospel. Let us grab the opportunity and prove our catholic identity,” Njue said.
