Pope’s new representative in Kenya holds first meeting with bishops
The new Apostolic Nuncio to Kenya and South Sudan, Archbishop Hubertus Matheus Maria van Megan, on Tuesday met Catholic bishops.
He met the bishops during their annual meeting at the Queen of Apostles Seminary.
Van Megan arrived in Kenya on Monday evening and was received by Catholic bishops, led by His Eminence John Cardinal Njue and Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops chairman Archbishop Philip Anyolo at JKIA.
He was appointed in February and takes over from Archbishop Charles Balvo, who has been appointed Apostolic Nuncio to Czech Republic.
