Rev. Fr. Raphael Opondo

Education Secretary

Rev. Sr. Cecilia Muthoni

Religious Education Advisor

Catholic education is a lifelong process of human growth and development. It is more than schooling. It begins in the home, continues in the school and matures through involvement with the Christian community in the parish. These three dimensions of home, school and parish work together to truly attain the goal of Catholic Education to form mature human persons in the image and likeness of Christ.
