Nairobi, (Kenya) -- An Online Course in Catholic Doctrine

To help families live the Year of Faith in accord with the recommendations of the Motu Propio Porta Fidei, Kianda School—a primary and secondary school in Nairobi attended by 800 girls—designed a course of Catholic doctrine on the Internet. It offered a study guide on the Catechism of the Catholic Church for all the families of students at the school who desired it. (As is the case with Kenya’s overall population, the students at this school belong to a great variety of religions). The course suggested readings, review questions and recommended links. Each week, the families enrolled received a class through the Internet that they studied on their own. Once a month they gathered at the school to review the content and clarify questions. On matriculating, each participant received a copy of the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
