Rev. Canon Rosemary Mbogo today officially retired from her role as the Provincial Secretary of the Anglican Church of Kenya. During a ceremony conducted in her honour at the All Saints Cathedral in Nairobi, Archbishop Jackson Ole Sapit of the Anglican Church congratulated Canon Rosemary for her decades of service to the church and wished her well in her new role.
An ordained Priest and Canon of the Church, Canon Rosemary holds a Bachelor of Education and a Masters of Arts in Theology and Biblical Counseling. She has in the past served in many positions in the education sector.
She was made the first ACK ordained woman canon (a priest or minister who is a member of certain bodies of the Christian clergy) in 2003, which she considers a great honour as it identified her as a role model in faith and ministry. Not long after, she was appointed a member of the Egerton University Council in 2004 where she served for three years.
In August 2012 she was appointed the chairperson of the National Council of Churches in Kenya (NCCK). She is the first woman in 100 years to be working in this position. Rosemary got married to Rev Engineer Sospeter Mbogo at age of 21, shortly before joining the university.
