25 Years of Service

The mission of the Apostolic Carmel (AC) congregation in the African continent has completed a commendable 25 years of selfless service, during which period the African natives have seen remarkable progress especially in the field of education and healthcare.

The mission of the Apostolic Carmel (AC) congregation in the African continent was in response to the invitation of Archbishop Nicodemus Kirima of Nyeri Archdiocese in Kenya, by Sr Mariella, the superior general of the Apostolic Carmel in 1991, to run a residential secondary school for the natives. The pioneering band of missionaries from India and Sri Lanka under the leadership of Sr Aloysius (after retirement as principal of St Agnes College, Mangaluru) arrived in Kenya in November 1991 and their life of single-minded zeal and commitment amidst all the challenges encountered and the hard life of initial years, laid a firm foundation of the AC mission in Kenya.The mission of the Apostolic Carmel (AC) congregation in the African continent has completed a commendable 25 years of selfless service, during which period the African natives have seen remarkable progress especially in the field of education and healthcare.
