St Irene Orthodox Mission Center & Orphanage
St Irene Orthodox Mission and Orphanage supports orphans and vulnerable children. It was started in the year 2010 by Fr. Constantinos and prosbylene Teresa Jepchumba who played a great role since its inception to date.
We started in a rented room that served both as a church and a catechetical classroom. Papadhia Teresa was instrumental during the formative years of the mission center, during this time Fr. Constantinos was a student at the Makarios III Seminary in Nairobi. It was during these first three years that St. Irene Mission Center developed into what it is today.
The institution is situated in Njabini South Kinangop sub county Kenya. The institution has a population of 200 needy children out of these 72 are totally orphans and live entirely in the orphanage. By the grace of God 105 kids are baptized and live the sacramental life of the orthodox faith.
All donations collected through our sister parish of the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church in Muskegon, Michigan will be disburded to our Orphanage and are tax deductable. If you have any questions, please contact our sister parish in America:

Our mission has played big role in spreading the Orthodox faith in this community. The mission started from scratch. We rented a room that served as a Church and a catechitical class.
I joined the Makarios 111 seminary in the year 2008. By the grace of God and intervention of my spiritual father now His Grace Bishop Neophytos I was ordained into priesthood and given the name Fr Constantinos by His Eminence Archbishop Makarios. Glory to God I was able to execute my duties of administering the sacraments most especially Baptism and Holy Eucharist.
