Father Nicholas E. Koro, A.J., ordained August 15, 2007, is a welcome addition to our pastoral team.  He joined us at the end of August 2014 after serving in Tanzania in Africa.  He was born and raised in Turkana County, Kenya, which lies in northern Kenya along the borders of Uganda, South Sudan and Ethiopia.  He is from the town of Kakuma which is also the site of one of the largest refugee camps in the world as refugees from several African nations have fled violence in their own countries.  His parents still live in Turkana County and he has two brothers and one sister. His parents are retired pastoralists (or as we would say, migrant workers) who worked the land. His home parish is Good Shepherd Catholic Parish in the Diocese of Lodwar. He attended seminaries in Nairobi, the capital of Kenya and was attracted to the Apostles of Jesus Missionaries who serve several parishes in his home diocese.  His priestly ordination was on August 19th 2007 in his home parish.
