 Br Joe Dao and Fr Francis with two of the new Salesian priests

It's always a delight to hear from Fr Francis Preston SDB in Kenya, but his latest news is especially joyful as he tells us about the recent ordinations of Salesians in Nairobi, and updates us on our friend, Br Joe Dao.


Last week, Brother Joseph Dao made the long journey by road to Nairobi to be present for the priestly ordination of two of his former Vietnamese student companions, Fr Peter and Fr Joseph.  Two other companions who are also working as missionaries  in different parts of Africa were among the 17 students from Don Bosco Utume who were ordained deacons at the same ordination ceremony last Friday at the Salesian Church of Mary Help of Christians in central Nairobi.
