Book launch

Book launch “Our Lives in His Hands” by Dr. Olga Emily Marlin

The book is a 2018 biography by Dr. Olga Emily Marlin, a co-founder of Kianda Secretarial College.  It tells the story of Tomás and Paquita Alvira, a Spanish couple and parents of a large family who, with their ordinary lives, portrayed married love in its truth, beauty and fruitfulness. The approval process for their beatification by the Catholic Church is underway.

Among the speakers on both days is Prof. Rafael Alvira; one of the children of the couple, a philosopher, writer and professor emeritus of the University of Navarre, Spain. Concha Alvira, their youngest daughter, lives and works in Kenya and has been a close collaborator in Kianda Foundation Educational Trust Projects since the early 1980s.
