Finding the missing bit to perfect happiness. - 06/02/2012

A Spiritan student on Pastoral Experience Programme in the UK bears his mind out.
Cleophas Kimaro, Cssp.

I began thinking about priesthood at an early age. I went on to serve at the altar from the age of nine and later entered the junior seminary in 1998, and the rest, as they say, is history.

I did abandon the idea at some point as a teenager. But, eventually, it came back to me that despite all I had going for me, and the happiness I enjoyed all the time, there was a missing bit. As time went by, I realised that the one place to find that missing bit to perfect happiness in its totality, was in Religious life.

I joined the Spiritans at home in Tanzania Province, and in 2010 I made my First Religious Profession, taking the three simple vows of poverty, chastity and obedience in the Spiritan congregation.

I was sent on a two-year Pastoral Experience Programme, in the British Province, in 2011, after my studies in philosophy.

I have been working in the Spiritan youth project, Just Youth. We reach out to young people in Schools and at the Spiritan Youth Centre. I also do some work with Refugees and Asylum Seekers at REVIVE, a Spiritan justice and peace project.

As a young religious missionary on mission experience, in this day and age, this is no doubt challenging. It is my prayer and belief that the will of God will always take me where His grace is.

I love playing football, basketball and table tennis. I am adventurous and love learning something new in life.
