KENYA: Pope Francis appoints Bishop of Kitale as Apostolic Administrator of Eldoret Diocese

The Holy Father has appointed Bishop Maurice Crowley of Kitale as the Apostolic Administrator of Eldoret Diocese following the passing on of the Bishop of Eldoret, Rt. Rev. Cornelius Korir on 30th, October, 2017. The Official communication was made through a letter dated 22nd, November, 2017 and signed by the Apostolic Nuncio to Kenya and South Sudan, Archbishop Charles D. Balvo. Bishop Crowley, 71 was appointed Bishop of Kitale on 3rd, April, 1998. On his speech during the funeral of Bishop Korir, Archbishop Balvo said that the late bishop had left him with something else to do, to look for his successor which he described not to be an easy task. “Certainly in the next few days someone has to be appointed temporarily to guide and direct the diocese of Eldoret as we seek to find the person who will succeed Bishop Korir,” the Nuncio. The late Bishop Korir was appointed Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Eldoret on 27th, April, 1990 and had served the diocese for 27 years till his demise. He was laid to rest on 11th, November, 2017. The Catholic Diocese of Eldoret is situated in the Rift Valley Province of Kenya on the western side of the Great Rift Valley. It was curved from Kisumu diocese as the Apostolic Prefecture over 50 years ago on the feast of St. Peter and Paul on 29th, June, 1953. The diocese was later subdivided three times giving rise to Nakuru, Kitale and Lodwar dioceses.
