“Pacem interris” is a Latin statement which means ‘’Peace on Earth.” ’The aspect of peace is a   desire for every human heart and mind hence this becomes a home for all.

  • The idea was conceptualized by Rev  Fr. Jonas Kiplimo the current Diocesan youth chaplain  for the youth to have a place where they can do workshops, seminars, and trainings on different areas irrespective of their backgrounds.
  • The main aim of the retreat centre is to help the youth in the Diocese grow spiritually, emotionally, psychologically, economically and even socially.
  • We will be having trainings, workshops and seminars which basically help the youth to be whole round.
  • It will be a retreat centre for the Diocese. Youth office currently sustain their activities throughout the year from the local contribution by the young people however this contribution might not take long due to the economy and that is why the idea of a Retreat centre came in so as to generate income for the youth activities and programmes in the Diocese. This centre also will be a rehabilitation centre.
