Eastleigh Nairobi Parish

Hi Skippy - strangely, like a few others, I missed this earlier post of yours. Johnny’s parents Mr. & Mrs. Evaristo Lobo and both Johnny and I as well as each working member of Johnny’s family had to donate monthly part of their salary to the church at the bequest of Fr. Wheelan. We are proud to be associated to St. Teresa’s parish and also to be part of the legacy we left behind for all to still enjoy in Kenya 🇰🇪

We all studied at Teresa’s and attended Teresa’s church: The Rodrigues family.  Bonny  Anthony  Johnny, Rose and Mary. We  were the very first students when the school was built. It was then a mixed boys’ and girls’ school. We were transferred from Catholic Parochial school to  St. Teresa’s.
