Why are these Sisters laughing? Actually, Sisters of Mary laugh and smile often, and bring Joy to others, while sharing Joy within their communities.

It's not always laughter, sometimes it's a warm smile in a difficult moment, to a child, to a parent, to someone ailing from disease or injury.

There is a freedom in taking vows, in dedicating oneĆ­s whole life to serving God and the people of God. That freedom translates into a light heart, one ready to smile, to laugh, seeing Christ in others.

Become a Servant of the Servants of God.

If you're not called to join the religious life of a Congregation, of the Sisters of Mary of Kakamega, you can still help them in their work, join in the smiles and the laughter. Contact us and let us know your willingness to pray and work with us. Help us by donating to our causes, by seeing that our vow of poverty leaves us with strength to do God's work on earth. Join us in spreading the Joy of serving Jesus Christ as He asked us to do:

"Whatsoever you do to the least of my people, that you do unto me." (Matthew 25:40)
