The Director of Holy Cross Family Ministries in East Africa, Fr Leonard Olobo thanked the participant schools for the enormous sacrifice and commitment they exhibited.

He encouraged more schools to participate in the annual competition, which he said helped the students to be grounded in the Christian faith, and also, to embrace a culture of prayer.
