    CP 70-2 7 July 2012

    From Nairobi

     

    Today end the eight days of Spiritual Exercises of the procurators who have come to participate in the Congregation of Procurators here in Nairobi. All, whether in the English or the Spanish group, expressed satisfaction in their experience of retreat together.

    Tomorrow, Sunday, will be a day of rest and relaxation. The organizers here in Nairobi  have prepared various possibilities: cultural (for example, a visit to the "Bomas of Kenya," a panoramic view of the culture and peoples of Kenya, or the Nairobi National Museum); ecological (a visit to the Nairobi National Park); pastoral (participation at Eucharist in some parishes of the city, such as Joseph the Worker in Kangemi, run by the Jesuits, or the Chapel of St. Paul.)


    Some points of interest regarding the Congregation. 84 Procurators are present in Nairobi, of whom 7 are from Africa, 14 from Latin America, 18 from South Asia, 7 from Asia Pacific, 29 from Europe, and 9 from the United States. 13 others will participate in the Congregation by virtue of their office.

    The average age of all the Procurators is 51.79, while the average age of all the participants (including those participating ex officio) is 53.41. By continent, Africa is the youngest, with an average age of 46.14, followed by Central and Eastern Europe with an average age of 47.83. The highest average ages are those of South Asia and the U.S.A., both of which have an average age of 54.78.
