Father Elias Kinoti Kithuri
Father Kinoti was born in the village of Maua in Meru County, Kenya in the 1972nd year of our Lord. He is the fourth of six children, locally educated. He and his family prayed the rosary every night by the kitchen fireplace from his earliest years.
He joined the St. Joseph and St. Thomas Seminaries of Nairobi in 1993 and 1996, respectively. He studied philosophy and theology. He regards this period as crucial to his spiritual formation and was inspired by several of his teachers.
Father Kinoti was ordained a Catholic priest on December 20, 2003. He worked in the Meru diocese for three years.
Next, Father Elias traveled to Chicago, Illinois in the United States. There, he became the Associate Pastor of St. Ignatius in Rogers Park while receiving a PhD in community psychology and international public service management.
Now, Father Kinoti travels between Kenya and the United States, and in collaboration with partners and sponsors hopes to make healthy and wealthy his homeland.
To do so, Father Kinoti has created a process that works through the individual, family and community.
Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.Matthew 25:40
