Don Giuseppe Allamano (1851-1926) – founder of the male and female branches
of the Conosolata Missionaries – formed and readied for departure young mis -
sionaries for Eastern Africa. Of these, two priests (31 year old T. Gays and 29 year
old F. Perlo) and two lay helper brothers (19 year old L. Falda and 18 year old C.
Lusso) reached Kenya in the month of May, 1902, settling themselves among the
Kikuyu people. Joined by other young missionaries, both male and female, in the
course of the following years, together they set in motion a fast and wide-ranging
evangelizing mission of the Consolata among the Kikuyu in Kenya. Drawing on the
diaries written between 1902 and 1905 by these same missionaries – truly an
enormous and for the most part unpublished source of information, impressions,
descriptions and reasoning – Alberto Trevisiol brings to light a narrative in real time
of the development of “missionary discipleship” of the Consolata among the Kikuyu,
placing in the hands of the readers an indispensable tool for the study of the history
of the Catholic evangelization in Kenya.
