My main criteria for choosing the next Visitor focuses on our future. Specifically, I worry that an ambiguous future regarding our commitment to Kenya may jeopardize our province’s diminishment, especially financially. We have been involved in Kenya for nearly 40 years and there is no clear plan to erect a Vice-Province, despite having those deadlines in place (that continually come and go).

QUESTION: Please explain how you would allow Kenya its independence and autonomy without years more of meetings, discussions, and excuses. It seems time to turn the table over to our Kenyan confreres and commit ourselves to dignified diminishment at home.
