Please PRAY FOR PEACE for our partners in Kenya, as they approach their national elections on March 4th, 2013. There is great fear of violence and corruption surrounding these elections, as there was for weeks following their last national elections in 2007.

Homa Bay Partnership Background
What is our Global Solidarity Partnership with Homa Bay, Kenya all about?
Background on the Partnership: Our St. Cloud Mission Office in association with Catholic Relief Services is taking a new proactive role towards "mission." The Diocese of St. Cloud has partnered with the Diocese of Homa Bay, Kenya in efforts to create not only a partnership but also a family in Christ. Global Solidarity Partnerships is a response taken by Catholic Relief Services concerning the U.S. Bishops, Called to Global Solidarity (1997), "We are members of a universal Church that transcends national boundaries and calls us to live in solidarity and justice with peoples of the world."
Delegations visiting from St. Cloud to Homa Bay and from Homa Bay to Saint Cloud, as well as long term missioners present in our diocese, have allowed us to form personal relationships, which are the true foundations of the partnership and of mission! All have worshipped God together, seen God in each other, and remain committed to share gifts with each other to build up the Reign of God on earth. The Leadership Teams in both dioceses make decisions guided by their experiences and interactions from their time abroad.
