St. Josemaría Escrivá Church, Munyaka, Kenya

In 2001, some faithful of Munyaka decided to build a church in their area. Devotion to St. Josemaría had spread in that community since 1984, when a woman from Munyaka, Mrs. Leah Kinyanjui, reported that she had been cured of a liver ailment after praying to St. Josemaría. As a result, the people there decided to dedicate the church to the Founder of Opus Dei. The Church was consecrated on August 31, 2003. With the number of faithful growing rapidly each year, the church soon proved to be too small. Therefore a new church with a capacity for 700 persons was planned, financed mainly by the parishioners themselves. On August 25, 2008, some parishioners of Josemaría Escrivá Church visited the Regional Vicar of Opus Dei in Kenya, Msgr. Alberto Pampillón, to ask for an image of St. Josemaría for the new church.
