Father Roach Returns Home – Briefly (1/3)

By the time everyone reads this post, Father Roach will probably be back home…temporarily.  You see, his Mission is done in Kenya, but he’s now off to Jamaica on the 11th!  –  Jim

Dear Mariema and JED,

Depart Nairobi at 11:30 PM, British Airways, Januaiy 3, Flight # 64, arrive at London-Heathrow January 4, 5;20 am Leave London-Heathrow, British Airways at 8:30 AM, Flight # 117 to arrive at JFK at 11:10 AM, January 4. Hope this gives you the information you need.

Went to Nairobi yesterday, visited a Marianist compound, studied with them at B.C. and also the International Center for the Marist Brothers with whom I also studied at B.C. both very interesting places. Bishop McDonnell’s (our Bishop in Spld.) brother was stationed here and I received a bunch of mail to bring home to him. I am commandeering a camera from the brothers and hope to send you some photos.

Hope all is well. Looking forward to seeing you on the 4th.

Blessings on all.

Fr. John
