Display of Handmade Stations of the Cross for Molo, Kenya.
STATIONS OF THE CROSS FOR MOLO, KENYA.
(LEGACY PROUDLY CONTINUED BY APOSTOLIC WORK GROUP FROM ST. ANTHONY’S PARISH JOINED BY MEMBERS OF DUBLIN SEWING GUILDS)
In 1911 The Millington Family from Shropshire went out to Molo, Kenya.
In years later they were joined by their extended Family of the Ryans
from Ireland. Elizabeth Ryan had 6 children in Molo, built the church
to St. Mary near her home. Then in 1967 they all returned to Wexford,
where they settled, but Elizabeth had started the stations in Linen
before she left and had hoped to finish them in Wexford, but
unfortunately cancer caught hold of her, having been given this
warning she worked tirelessly to try to finish them, but did no
succeed, never the less she did at 50% of each station. She died 40
years ago and now her family found us out in Apostolic Work. As we are
getting older we do not have those skills anymore, so friends from
sewing guilds in Dublin were asked to help finish, 12 are finished and
so you will see them all here in St.Anthony’s on Sat., Sun and Monday
