Father Pascal Mwijage

St. Joseph’s The Worker Parish, a Catholic Church located in Kangemi, Nairobi County was just an ordinary church. No one, apart from those living close to the Parish, knew about it until the current Pope of the Roman Catholic Church, His Holiness Pope Francis visited Kenya. He visited the church where Pascal Mwijage is the Father In-Charge, because it is the only Jesuit church in Nairobi but the main in East and Central Africa.

Working under the famous Fr Afulo, Pascal Mwijage isn’t as much of a household name as local Catholic leaders. He is only known to his church members and maybe the Catholic fraternity around the area. Well, despite being known for his priestly duties of taking care of God’s flock, it is alleged that Fr Pascal Mwijage has been living in sin; not expected of the people of God especially a priest. Pascal, of Tanzanian origin, has been working in Kenya (St. Joseph’s Parish) for the last five years. His contract is ending in February after an extension, as the construction of Christ The King church in Kangemi which was part of his project, was not complete. However, the church was opened a week before the Pope jetted in.
