Email from Bishop Dominic, 20 November 2017 :

Dear Fr. Fergus,

Greetings from Lodwar - Turkana, where at the moment we are enjoying a bit of a green environment after the recent rains were received following a long period of drought that lasted over 2 years.  The pastoral communities, who live on their livestock are very much contented for with good pasture their animals will produce milk. Their livestock devastated by the drought will now increase and they will have meat in plenty.
Regarding Queen of Peace Primary school we now have 620 students, 24 teachers, 13 supportive staff and 2 religious sisters. Next year we are expecting the school population to grow to over 700.
The other good news is that the first group of students from Queen of Peace Primary School sat for their Standard Eight National exams called Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE). There were 24 candidates in all. We have all been praying for their success and if they pass very well they will now proceed to Secondary/High School for a duration of four years. From there they will join College or University. We all have very high expectations for these students since the school is excellent, with good teachers and a very focused administration under Sr. Marcella, a member of the Assumption Sisters of Eldoret who are managing the school on behalf of the Diocese.
Once again I wish to express my gratitude and that of the entire Diocese of Lodwar for the support we have received from Our Lady Queen of Peace Parish towards the construction of the school right from the beginning.  Through your assistance and that of other partners we were able to construct
  • 16 Classrooms
  • Administration Block
  • Kitchen and Dining Hall
  • and one Dormitory for about 100 students. 
We also have the bus now that used be a lorry thanks to the contributions from Our Lady Queen of Peace.
The school has a chapel that used to serve the Christian Community around the school.  However because of the growth in numbers it became too small.  Now the Parish is constructing a new Church.  We renovated the old chapel, put tiles and new chairs - thanks to the cash you brought the last time you came to Kenya.  We also have a tabernacle appreciated very much by the students as they pray in the presence of the Lord, visit the Blessed Sacrament and have moments of adoration and Benediction.
The 2016 Christmas donation from Our Lady Queen of Peace is being used now in the construction of a new convent for the Nuns. The convent will have 4 self-contained rooms, a kitchen and a dining room, a store as well as a chapel. Other donations went to the construction of a new block of 4 classrooms that, with its completion, has brought the total number of classrooms to 16. 

The two projects that are ongoing now simultaneously are the Convent and a new dormitory expected to accommodate 200 students. We urgently need financial help to complete the two projects.  
  • The dormitory will cost 8,000,000 Kenyan Shillings (€80,000) and we only have Ksh. 6,000,000 (€60,000) 
  • The convent will cost Ksh. 6,000.000 (€60,000) and as of now we have Ksh. 4,000.000 (€40,000).  
In all we need Ksh,4,000,000 (€40,000) to complete these two important projects. With the completion of the new dormitory we expect to have 320 students in the boarding section. The rest of the 700 students expected next year will continue operating from their homes as day scholars. The convent, on the other hand, is crucial if we have to have more nuns in the school.  
It is obvious that the students of Queen of Peace are most fortunate to have such a good school with proper structures, very committed teachers, nuns that are there for them 24 hours and spiritual formation and sustenance from the priests of the Holy Family Parish. All the students get meals in the school.  No doubt they are getting the best, ensuring them of a wonderful future, a good Christian formation, discipline and academic excellency.  
We say a big thank you to all the parishioners of Our Lady Queen of Peace for making all these things possible. 
God bless you abundantly,
Bishop Dominic.
