Rev Fr Adolf Imogaka, Fr Alleluia


Popularly referred to as "Fr. Alleluia", Rev. Fr Adolf Imogaka, popularly leaves for him home country, Italy.

Father Alleluia worked in Kenya, East Africa since 1968, that is 53 years, to be precise. In retirement, he returns to his home country, Italy. 

On June 3rd, 2021, Fr. Adolf will be 81 years old. He is a native of South Tyrol at the border of Italy and Austria. He was ordained a Catholic Priest in 1966, in the Diocese of Bolzano-Brixen, in his home country of Northern Italy.

He arrived in Kenya in 1969, and served in the Diocese of Kisii for 31 years, that is 1969-2000. He also served the people of the Diocese of Malindi for 20 years, that is 2001-2021.

He had a Thanksgiving and Send forth Mass on Sunday, May 23, 2021.

Fr. Alleluia carried just two bags as he leaves Kenya for Italy

For five decades, Fr. Alleluia had worked in Africa. He leaves for his country, Italy on the 25th of May, 2021 and the picture of him moving does not depict he had been affected by the African mentality.

Fr. Alleluia carried two small baggage, carrying them by himself as he leaves Kenya. As a true icon of humility, he carried those bags, that seemed to be very light all by himself. He would have had someone carry them for him, as Africans are known for rendering helping hands in scenarios like this.

Fr. Adolf is a true missionary indeed following the instructions of his Master, Jesus, who said "Take nothing for the journey—no staff, no bag, no bread, no money, no extra shirt. Whatever house you enter, stay there until you leave that town.”
Luke 9:3,4

May God bless the Spirit of Fr. Adolfo Imogaka, alias Fr. Alleluia, and may all other missionaries all across the globe, that they may perform with all their heart, the duties assigned to them and not run after material possessions. Amen.
