Holy Cross Parish Dandora, Nairobi-Kenya

Holy Cross Parish Dandora was inaugurated in 1978. It was put under the administration of the congregation of Holy cross. It is located in the Archdiocese of Nairobi – Kenya. The ministries of the parish include St. James Nursery and Primary School, the Brother André Dispensary, a tailoring school for women, and a microfinance lending program.

Christ was anointed to bring good news to the poor, release for prisoners, sight for the blind, restoration for every broken victim. Our efforts, which are his, reach out to the afflicted and in a preferential way to the poor and the oppressed. We come not just as servants but as their neighbors, to be with them and of them.

Today, the parish has 59 Small Christian Communities (SCC) and out of these, 6 belong to the youths from the 6 regions of the parish. The Youth Small Christian Communities of our parish have got the favour of the AMECEA (Association of Member Episcopal Conferences of Eastern Africa). In September 2019, the parish received a delegation from the AMECEA led by Bishop Methodius from Bukoba Tanzania with many other priests and religious from Uganda, Congo and Cameroon to meet our Dandora Youths. They joined in the youth SCC prayer meetings to go and make possible recommendations to different AMECEA dioceses.
