 Spiritan House, Nairobi (SHN)
 
The 10 acres of land on which Spiritan House, Langata is located was donated to the Spiritans by the late Maurice Cardinal Otunga (RIP) in 1976.    Fr. James Cunningham (RIP) foresaw the construction  of the buildings. Spiritan House was opened in October 1978 with Fr. Thomas McDonald as Director assisted by Fr. William Maher (RIP). Since then, Spiritan House grew physically and as a community. Up to 1986, scholastics pursued their theology studies at St. Thomas Aquinas, Nairobi which is a diocesan seminary.

 
Spiritan House is a house for formation with a view to a permanent consecration to the apostolate. During this period of 4 years, a professed Spiritan is to attain a certain maturity in all aspects of Spiritan living. He is to deepen spiritual and religious commitment, a practical missionary spirituality and community living (Guide for Spiritan Formation 64).
 
Tangaza College
 
In September 1986, a new Theological Centre for Religious was opened. Its present name is Tangaza College. The Spiritans were among the three founding members of Tangaza College. The College is now a consortium owned by more that 20 Religious families whose major superiors are members of the Board of Governors for the College. The main school is the school of theology which has more than 450 students most of whom are preparing for ordained ministry. The students come from all the four corners of the World. Tangaza College has also many institutes that include, social communication, social ministry, youth ministry, Islamic studies and education. The College is now affiliated to the Catholic University for Eastern Africa (CUEA). The College also signed an agreement of affliation with Duquesne University, Pittsburgh, USA in February 2010. This affliation will enable Theology students to earn a Masters degree from Duquesne University.
