Sr Mary meeting the Pope

Staff and students in Sancta Maria college were delighted last week to hear that Sr Mary Killeen was given the opportunity to meet with and address Pope Francis on his recent visit to Nairobi. For over ten years now Sancta Maria College students and staff have been fundraising and travelling to Nairobi to work with Sr Mary and the various projects she is involved in. Sr Mary told Pope Francis of the difficulties she faces on a daily basis including an ongoing court battle where she is fighting to keep land for a playground for one of the schools for slum children.
