The ceremony took place at Tabor Hill spiritual centre, which is exactly on the equator crossing the Gilgil -Nyahururu road and was attended by at least 5000 faithful from all over the diocese. Three days before the ordination, the Bishop had a retreat seminar with the newly ordained priests. On Thursday the July 24, He had a special meeting with the Parents of those to be ordained.
