ArchiBishop of Kisumu - Rakwaro Patron - Rev. Philip Arnold Anyolo Dear Alumni brethren,

St. John’s Seminary Rakwaro marks its 63rd birthday this year 2019, and I could not have imagined a better gift to an institution whose contribution to the Church and Society cannot be measured. A website for St. John’s Seminary Rakwaro was always the next need in our time; a time defined more by information and speed. That is why I am exceedingly grateful for the alumni group that has finally made this possible. Good things are shared; a reason why this website now gives us an opportunity to share with the wide world the glories of our Alma Mater, St. John’s Seminary Rakwaro. Many good people now impacting our world positively in countless ways had their innocent child-like faith guided and deepened within the hallowed grounds of Rakwaro Seminary. It is a place where we lived the most precious moments of our formative years; a place that will forever inform our view of life, the world, others and even our view of our own selves. Like our personal and intimate shadows, our past in St. John’s Seminary will forever be part of our existential reality whether we are aware of it or not.

Through this website, many good people who care about goodness, who have benefited from our goodness and who would also wish to walk with us in giving back will have a platform from which to engage and interact with us. I therefore gladly invite all the alumni as well as friends of the Seminary to take advantage of this global pedestal to build our family which is defined by a common past. I wish to humbly entreat all who will visit this website to purposely choose to be the needed talent, to grow both ourselves, and our alma mater; never forgetting the rallying call of our founding fathers ‘ With God, to Study is to Conquer’ (Cum Deo Studere Vincere Est).
